This may be hard to believe, but there's a dark side to starting a solo career with two No. 1 singles. Ask singer Peter Cetera. He's still trying to straighten things out. Last year the former member of the pop-rock band Chicago started his solo career with a No. 1 single, "Glory of Love," the theme from "The Karate Kid Part II." But most fans of the record didn't even know it was Cetera singing the song, which he'll perform at the Oscars on Monday.

These days pop-rock sound tracks are usually unsatisfying packages featuring one or two likable songs and the rest filler. But this one, from the hit romantic comedy, is loaded with gems, from David Bowie's updated "Fame 90" and Natalie Cole's "Wild Women Do" to Red Hot Chili Pepper's "Show Me Your Soul." But there are two sappy clunkers--by Jane Wiedlin and Peter Cetera. The gem of this collection, of course, is Roy Orbison's classic rendition of the title song.

Two prominent, if recently transplanted, Idahoans--pop singer Peter Cetera and actress Pamela Sue Martin--have testified in opposition to plans to build a nuclear weapons plant in the state. Cetera, the former bassist-vocalist of Chicago (and now a solo act) who lives in Boise, spoke at the public hearing recently and urged the federal government to "stop making our state a nuclear dumping ground for the rest of the country. We have enough bombs."

The Scene: It's been held only once before, but, hey, no problem. L'Orangerie's second annual champagne-drenched pre-Oscar fete on Friday night was proclaimed by all a "tradition." In any case, it may be the only party held during Oscar-countdown week where there were no speeches, awards or honorees. Once again, Harry Winston jewelers and Relais & Chateaux, the international restaurant and hotel directory, underwrote the evening.
