"Let's Be Lovers Again" by Eddie Money with Valerie Carter

Song#:  0372
Date:  10/18/1980
Debut:  82
Peak:  65
Weeks:  6
Genre:  Rock, Pop

Pop Bits:  The first two singles from Money's third album "Playing for Keeps," were not racing up the chart and this third one didn't do anything to reverse the trend. This time he had some help with vocalist Valerie Carter (James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Christopher Cross), but it wasn't really enough to lift this song into the upper reaches of the chart.

ReduxReview:  I love Valerie Carter and I think she sounds great and melds well with Money. But the mid-tempo ballad just doesn't grab you with anything significant. It is just alright and nothing that would make me want to run out and buy it. Kind of unremarkable and unmemorable.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  I posted about Valerie Carter earlier as she seemed to be the subject of the Jackson Browne song "That Girl Could Sing." So if you missed it, look that song up on here as I posted a solo song from Carter on that entry. She was an in-demand session singer and did other duets as well such as the song "Spinning" on Christopher Cross' debut album.
