Russ Ballard

British singer/songwriter Russ Ballard, born in Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, was the lead singer of Argent, for whom he wrote the hit "God Gave Rock and Roll to You." He has balanced a solo career with a songwriting career, the latter producing such hits as Three Dog Night's "Liar" and Hot Chocolate's "So You Win Again." His only U.S. singles chart entry under his own name is "On the Rebound," which hit number 58 in 1980. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

through sun or moon the flames will consume with no impunity to one's extemporized tune playing towards their final days as the hands of fate rust away on a clock not counting every effort made to stay another step ahead before the last sleep in darken bed when neither strength nor size stand without the plagiarized of those once seen while passing by to watch with glazed eyes days withering away no longer given more than a brief time to stay

I agree with Paul. I had scheduled to record Miami Vice and one segment recorded, "Calderion Return", played " Voices". The more I dug, learned many of the songs recorded were in other programs as well.

Like much 80's music it's way overproduced and way too synthetic. Later

It was fun to realize that many of my 45's that I liked were written by the same guy. Many genres. Also, Voices on Miami Vice was one of the better uses of a song on that show.

she's standing just out side ready to give you a ride luck has away to lend her hand when every thing seems to get lost in the sand as you fall out of phase and karma forgets your face intuition plays you a new conclusion when her fate spins your way to take your heart out of the grave and you find yourself in a new place that sweet honey taste called victory and winning calls your name to come and gather your bounty in this new game with no undo haste

Did Russ write I'm Winning? I always thought it was Santana.

this song was kind of theraputic for me at a tough time in my life. but, with this and some other songs (of that time) ... i got the key
Report as inappropriate
I'm more familiar with Santana's version but I first heard this one here on Pandora. I love both versions.

Miami Vice ,Voices I did not see the credits drove me crazy trying to find out who sang it 2 yrs. later in a used record shop album cover got my attention .50 I found my "Voices"!I think "The Fire Still Burns" is his best I've worn out two tapes. Tapes? I don't play the album vinyl is hard to find.His music stays with the times

Whoa, 'Voices', 'God Gave Rock and Roll To You' and 'Liar'.
This guy could write a memorable tune.

bobbaft - Thanks for your juvanile comment. We're all so much better off knowing your maturity has retarted at a high school boy's level. Interesting, though, that you equate Miami Vice soundtracks with songs that "rock". No doubting we'll hear some Van Halen or Rush on some late night syndicated episodes.

Easy, now...back under your rock. That's a good troll. Good troll.

I got this info from Wikipedia, (pretty easy).....Ki s s guitarist, Ace Frehley, covered "New York Groove" on his self-titled solo album in 1978. Frehley's version reached #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and has been a regular staple of Kiss live performances , during tours in which Frehley has taken part.

The song Voices rocks! After listening to couple other samples, most of it sounds like generic forgettable songs from forgettable late 80's early 90's movies.
Report as inappropriate
So why would we email you if your wife wants to know about him? Give me her email and her phone number...I'l l hook her up, if you catch my drift! She hot? She a chick?

Voices was on one of the first episodes of Miami Vice, so you know it rocks.
