** "Said I Loved You But I Lied" is the most over-the-top music video ever produced for a {{Silly Love Song}}. It features, among other things, Bolton singing from on top of a mountain, his shirt completely unbuttoned, with the camera spinning around him, while horses run through fire on a beach.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Although some people like it better, the AOR, pop-metal style of his earliest albums will no doubt surprise most listeners more familiar with his soft rock material. His ''really'' early installments (which came out in the 1970s when he was still going by his birth name, Michael Bolotin) were even weirder, sounding kind of like Joe Cocker.
