Throwback Friday: “More Than Words” by Extreme

I heard the song “More Than Words” by Extreme on the radio the other day and was reminded of how much I love it. It’s definitely going on my “rainy day” playlist.  I honestly think it’s one of the most beautiful ballads ever made- does that sound extreme? (no pun intended)

“More Than Words” features lead singer Gary Cherone with Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt on the guitar and harmonizing vocals.  Other band mates included Pat Badger and Paul Geary.  The song is off the album “Extreme II: Pornograffiti” and hit #1 on the US and UK billboard charts.  They’d probably be classified as one-hit wonders because “More Than Words” was by far their greatest commercial success.

Below is the video for “More Than Words.”  I can’t help but think that Gary and Nuno look like a white version of Milli Vanilli in the video 😆 , but I guess that late 80s/early 90s Kenny G hair was all the rage back then?  I also wonder how many proms had this song as their theme in ’90 and ’91.

Enjoy this week’s Throwback Friday, “More Than Words” by Extreme…
