"Trust Me" by Cindy Bullens

Song#:  0007
Date:  01/12/1980
Debut:  93
Peak:  90
Weeks:  3
Genre: Rock

Pop Bits: Bullens had two well-received albums in the late 70s that somehow didn't really catch fire; even though her debut disc "Desire Wire" garnered her a Grammy nom for Best Rock Vocal Performance. She is still recording and getting great reviews, but from what I have read her first two LPs should have made her a star.

ReduxReview: Well, it was bound to happen. This is the first song I've come across that I can't find a full version to hear. Seems almost strange. The best I could do was the above YouTube video that features a snippet of the song at the 2:16 mark. From what I could tell, I like this and may even try to search out her first to discs. I actually bought one of her later discs, the 2001 "Neverland," but at that time she was more into roots rock than the pop/rock heard here. I can only rate by what I hear, but my expectations would be...  (Note:  A reader brought to my attention that the full song is available now. Also, after this post I ended up buying the vinyl album, which is terrific. This song has a minor epic kind of feel that's kind of like Benatar crossed with Springsteen. I like it a lot and my rating still stands.)

ReduxRating:  8/10

Trivia: Bullens got a second Grammy nomination for her lead vocals on the "Grease" soundtrack where she performed "Freddy, My Love," "It's Raining on Prom Night," and "Mooning."



  1. great series, just going back and reading from the beginning (I do a similar blog just about top-40 hits). Just to soothe your OCD if you didn't know thanks to you tube this ultra-cool song IS up now. Cheers.

    1. Thanks and welcome aboard! I'll have to post the new video. Yeah, I don't often get to revisit posts to update the sound. Songs on both YouTube and Spotify can come and go, or new ones get added finally over the years that weren't there when I first posted. Every once in a while I'll catch one and update it.

  2. Chart Run: 93 - 91 - 90
