MISS YOU

from FRENCH TOUCH

Written by Mick Jagger & Keith Richards

The song was an instant smash reaching #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and selling more than one million copies in the US alone. “Miss You” went to #3 on the UK Singles chart and became a huge worldwide hit.

TAKE IT UPTOWN

from RUNAWAY

Written by Bill Champlin & Kenny Loggins

Bill Champlin’s sophomore solo effort, Runaway, was released in 1981. David Foster was again in the producer’s seat. Together, the two friends crafted a well-dosed collection of pop/rock numbers and refined ballads. Despite its strong potential, Runaway didn’t do much on the charts with just a four week stay on the Billboard Top 200, eventually peaking at #178. The album spawned a couple of minor hits on Billboard’s Hot 100 with two gorgeous ballads, “Tonight, Tonight” and “Sara.” Both songs were perfectly arranged melodic masterpieces that deserved more attention given their radio-friendly appeal.

from KISSING A FOOL (single)

Written by George Michael

“Kissing A Fool” was a beautiful ballad written and sung by the incredible George Michael (1963-2016) from his 1987 multi-platinum smash, Faith. This modern torch song was one of the singles from the album and reached #5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 as well as #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The late UK superstar was one of the best singers of his generation and his performance on “Kissing A Fool” was another showcase of class and superior skills.
