Christopher Cross

Christopher Cross was far and away the biggest new star of 1980, virtually defining adult contemporary radio with a series of smoothly sophisticated ballads including the chart-topping "Sailing"; seemingly as quickly as he shot to fame, however, his star descended, although he continued recording and touring for years to come. Born Christopher Geppert in San Antonio, TX on May 3, 1951, Cross first surfaced in the Austin-based cover band Flash before signing a solo contract with Warner Bros. in the autumn of 1978. His self-titled debut LP appeared two years later, with the lead single "Ride Like the Wind" rocketing to the number two spot; the massive success of the second single, "Sailing," made Cross a superstar, and in the wake of two more Top 20 hits, "Never Be the Same" and "Say You'll Be Mine," he walked off with a record-setting five Grammys in 1981, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year for "Sailing." He soon scored a second number one as well as an Academy Award with "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)," which he co-wrote with Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager, and Peter Allen for the smash Dudley Moore film comedy Arthur.

Cross' much-anticipated sophomore effort, Another Page, arrived in 1983, but except for the Top Ten entry "Think of Laura" (popularized through its constant presence on the daytime soap phenomenon General Hospital), the album failed to repeat the success of its predecessor, and somewhat amazingly, he never returned to the Top 40 again. Every Turn of the World appeared to little notice in 1985, and when 1988's Back of My Mind failed to chart altogether, Cross was dropped by Warner. His next album, Rendezvous, did not appear until five years later on BMG. Window followed in 1995, and in 1998 he signed to CMC International for Walking in Avalon, a two-disc effort split between new studio material and live recordings of his past hits. Cross returned in the spring of 2000 with The Red Room. Two years later, Rhino released the comprehensive hit collection The Very Best of Christopher Cross. Cross closed out the decade with a Christmas album in 2007 and an acoustic album called The Cafe Carlyle Sessions in 2008. Dr. Faith, his first collection of new songs in ten years, appeared in the fall of 2010. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

I love this song so much! !!!!!!!!80's the best ever! !!!! Lo mejor de los 80's por siempre im flying again ohhhh!!!!!!
Takes me back..
This reminds me of a perfect day sailing in Seattle.
He has his own style for sure. Kind of lite rock/jazzy style. Takes me back to when I was 12. Luv it.

CC makes me smile every time I hear his music. I would have to say that MTV killed his career. His videos weren't edgy and he didn't have 'the look'. But his voice was smooth and distinct... still is.
Still awesome; saw him in concert Dec 2014 with Dave Koz & Friends, Warfield Theatre, SF ��
A balladeer of brief career highs, he still carved a niche in old school soft pop civilization . Today we have noise in comparison.

Ride Like The Wind - Michael McDonald makes this song with those smooth background vocals!
Victoria is a good friend
He was a great singer but what killed his career was unfortunatel y he didn't have "the look" and when people saw what he looked like on MTV he dropped off the charts. Shallow and stupid reason.

This is a song that sounds like it was playing at a roller skating rink in the early 80s. I do like the song Sailing.

One of the top ten most beautiful songs ever made. Nostalgia at its best. Much love to Chris.cross
LOL Zeenasix! Adam was probably just bored and posted that on all songs. You're right, though, Chris hates him!

Great singer and terrific lyrics. Please tell me why you even comment if you don't like him?? I think I heard Chris say he didn't like you anyway Adam so no worries!
Memories of the 80s all my friends were still alive everything was ahead of us
This is such a peaceful song. When my stress is high I listen to this and take a mini vacation from the pressures of my day.
