Rick Springfield has proven himself a man of so many talents since arriving on this planet 60 years ago today in Sydney, Australia. Soft-rock hit-maker, swoon-worthy soap star, racy pay-cable guest — is there anything Rick can’t do?
Enjoy several of Springfield’s skills at once in the clip for 1982’s “Don’t Talk to Strangers,” below, wherein he fully inhabits the role of a creepy stalker who is also a cheesetastic rock’n’roller. Then speak up: What’s your favorite Rick Springfield tune? (And don’t say “Born to Run” or something. That would just be rude, especially on his birthday.)
