It seemed like such a simple request. Ronny Hornstein, an unmarried nursery school teacher from Brooklyn, N.Y., said she didn't expect a marriage proposal. Although, she had to admit, it would be the answer to her every dream. Debbie Doyle, a happily married mother of four from Burlington, N.J., said she didn't want to change her life. All the pair wanted, they said, was to meet Englebert Humperdinck.

* * 1/2 THE ICICLE WORKS. "If You Want to Defeat Your Enemy Sing His Song." RCA/Beggar's Banquet. Of all the groups to come out of the early-'80s Liverpool post-punk scene (notably Echo & the Bunnymen), this trio has remained the most unaffected by fashion--a winning trait that emerges particularly in its energetic, unflashy concerts.

Country music goes to the dogs in "Doggone Country," a tail-waggin' roundup of suchcanine-croonings as "They Gotta Quit Kickin' My Dawg Around," recorded in 1926 by Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers; Burl Ives' "I Found My Best Friend in the Dog Pound"; T. Texas Tyler's deliciously woeful tear-jerker from 1948, "Dad Gave My Dog Away"; and the Hoosier Hot Shots' '60s parody of the Elvis smash, "Hound Dog."

As Elvis Presley might have put it, Alviss Preston was "All Shook Up." Preston is a 41-year-old Elvis impersonator from Long Beach. And he didn't care for what he was seeing and hearing Monday at a Beverly Hills party--one of several gatherings held Monday to mark the 55th anniversary of the birth of the rock 'n' roll legend. Brent Lee, known as the Chinese Elvis, was wrapping up a medley of the Memphis Elvis' greatest hits for the party crowd. The Long Beach Alviss wasn't impressed.

Anyone who has seen Jenny Jones' nightclub act Girls' Night Out knows there's only one qualification to enjoying the show--you have to be a woman. For the past two years, the L.A.-based comedian has barred the doors of her performances to men--even male members of the staffs of the comedy clubs where she appears.

Even in the '70s, when casual was cool and pop stars were supposed to look the same way on stage that they did on the street, Robert Palmer was a man who knew how to dress himself. The dapper singer also had a way of surrounding himself with gorgeous women, which got him pegged as a debonair womanizer. His pervasive image was as sort of the sophisticate's Englebert Humperdinck, a popular singer who obviously enjoyed publicly flaunting his image.
