Today's pick is from uber-talented but under-successful '80s solo artist Martin Briley, with what was, sadly, his one big hit. Every decent songwriter probably has at least one Billboard Top 100 hit in him (this one hit #36), but we would have (and did) wished for more from this guy.
He's still writing for other artists, but he faded fast when he couldn't repeat the debut effort. There are better audio versions floating around on YouTube, but I grabbed the music video from this 1983 hit, which matched the song (and the album cover) perfectly, giving more legs to the tune, and which remains a go-to anthem for everyone screwed over by the Flying Fickle Finger Of Fate, Cupid Edition.
For anyone who finds and keeps the love of their life on the first try, I have nothing but admiration. But remember kids, for at least 50% of us, divorce will be expensive for one reason:
because it's worth it.
Preach the gospel, brother Sam.
