Yes but only if you give him a the title of "King of the Two-Hit Wonders" (though Mr. Mister might protest)

Corey Hart should indeed be inducted because of the quality of his songwriting. He not only had hits in the 80's but continued to write moving songs up until recent years. His latest work has mostly been known to the Canadian audience, but that should not disqualify him. Also he has continued to work with other artists, including writing several songs for Celine Dion. His contribution to rock n' roll did not end in the 80's, and he deserves recognition.

Call Corey Hart a 1 or 2 hit wonder or whatever you want but if you call him that and have not listened to any other songs of his besides "Sunglasses" and "Never Surrender" then you really aren`t understanding or recognizing what a great song writer he really was.He might be one of the most under appreciated music artists.

Good grief, I hope not.

There are some excellent posts here regarding Corey, and I refer to the ones who appreciate his music and songwriting, not the others who don't have a clue about talent.

As a fan since "Sunglasses" I can only say he more than deserves the induction. Considering some of those who have actually been inducted, I have to wonder what the hell they were thinking. Since he is eligible, maybe those in charge of nominating will get their act together and induct him already. God knows he deserves it!

If nothing else, maybe he'll get inducted into the Canadian RRHOF.
