Kevin Cronin Reveals ‘Can’t Fight This Feeling’ Line That He Has ‘Copped So Much Crap For’

REO Speedwagon frontman and songwriter Kevin Cronin has revealed that the line ‘Its time to bring the ship into the shore’ in ‘Can’t Fight This Feeling’ has given him non-stopped grief over the years.

“The line I’ve copped so much crap for, ‘its time to bring the ship into the shore’, I get so much crap for that line. Deservedly”, Kevin says in a new interview with ProfessorOfRockVEVO.

In the interview Kevin says that when he was writing the song “I knew I was going to get shit for it. Its almost bubblegum. I knew there would be a lot of people that would hate it but I also had this feeling that it would stick in people’s heads so much that I couldn’t possibly not use it in the song”.

“That part of the song came to me in basically one take. I’d been thinking about it for 10 years and it took that one moment,” Kevin added.

Watch the full interview here:

REO Speedwagon’s ‘Can’t Stop This Feeling’ was first released in the UK on 31 December 1984. It spent three weeks at number one in the USA and reached number two in Australia.

The song was on REO Speedwagon’s 11th album ‘Wheels Are Turnin’, released in 1984.

REO Speedwagon performed the song at Live Aid in 1985 where they were introduced by Chevy Chase.

Adam Reader is the Professor of Rock. The Beach Boys gave him the name.
