"Cry Just a Little" by Paul Davis

Song#:  0263
Date:  07/19/1980
Debut:  81
Peak:  78
Weeks:  4
Genre:  Pop, Adult Contemporary

Pop Bits:  Davis had a minor hit with the gospel-flavored "Do Right" (#23) and chose this song to be the second single from his self-title 1980 album. And like "Do Right," which hit #4 on the AC chart, this song fared a bit better on that chart reaching #36.

ReduxReview:  This is a pleasant, if bland, AC tune. It's the sound of Paul Davis. If you don't like this, you pretty much won't like the majority of his pop catalog.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  Davis signed on to the famous Bang Records label, the initial home to Neil Diamond. The label had releases beginning in 1965 and folded in 1982 and sold to CBS. Davis was the last active artist on the label before it was sold. This was Davis' last single for the label before moving over to Arista.
