Donny Osmond-- Soldier of Love

Sang it, Donny!

I loved this song when I was younger! I remember there was a lot of secrecy around who performed the song because they didn't want it known it was Donny freakin' Osmond.

I've always loved this track too. This and that album's other single, "Sacred Emotion".

Very George Michael/Robbie Nevil. Not a big UK hit (his biggest market perhaps at one point), but one I always liked.

What I most remember about it was a plagiarism controversy.

Donny is really nice in person.

The video was directed by Michael Bay. Really.

yes, the radio stations at the time wouldn't reveal who the singer was until after the song was a hit, which is kind of crazy if you think about it. But it was a good song, as was Sacred Emotion. He probably could have been a bigger star if he tried and Marie certainly could have too, but after she turned down the role of Sandy in Grease and went crazy, nobody wanted to really invest the time or energy.

Friends were producers on their late 90's talk show, "Donny & Marie," and although the show wasn't a success, Donny and Marie were incredibly kind, down to earth and really made everyone feel welcome. And Marie gave out her dolls to EVERYONE!

Is it Mormon-like to have your bulge so unabashedly on display as this?

Marshall's SOL has nothing on Mr. Osmond's.

This song was a pretty big hit. The weird thing is, if Donny had been willing to fully give up the squeaky clean image of the Osmond Family I think he could have gone on to become a modest star again at this period--he has a great voice, and at this point he was handsome and even sexy. But he couldn't go all the way. he could make a sexy video, but he couldn't not go around smiling like a dope and talking about the importance of his hateful family in interviews.

My roommate from college is a screenwriter in Hoolywood, and he somehow got a hold of some notes Donny and Marie had on their talk show for "spontaneous chitchat" that had been pre-written for them to make them sound natural and unrehearsed. He showed them to me, and they were absolutely (and unintentionally) hilarious.

Donny revealed in an interview that he was jealous of Michael Jackson's career.

Doesn't Donny have some very anti-Gay views? I think I read somewhere he was against Gay marriage. I always got the vibe he didn't like us.

He's singing about sex and having sex with people.

Is Donny cut or uncut? Hairy Hole? Are Mormons allowed to finger each other?
