30 Years Ago Today

30 years ago today, back when the Grammy Awards were almost worth watching, Christopher Cross cleaned up with this classic.  Cross won 4 Grammy Awards that night including record of the year - sailing; album of the year - Christopher Cross (self-titled); song of the year - sailing; and best new artist.  Sailing remains as one the best soft rock songs ever, IMHO.  Enjoy...

Found you through A-Z and know I'm going to love it here.
I'd totally forgotten this song.

I was just listening to some Christopher Cross the other day. Great stuff! I'm old enough to recall him cleaning up that night. I'm a hair metal and classic rock guy, but that man had some skill. Good call!
