"Say You'll Be Mine" by Christopher Cross

Song#:  0551
Date:  03/28/1981
Debut:  74
Peak:  20
Weeks:  14
Genre:  Pop, Adult Contemporary

Pop Bits:  In addition to winning 5 Grammys for his self-titled debut album, Cross got this fourth and final Top 20 hit from the LP. Despite all this attention, the album only reached #6 on the chart. However, more than 5 million copies were sold in the US.

ReduxReview:  Cross had three solid singles and then they chose this dorky song to release. I never liked the song and still only tolerate it. I though the song "I Really Don't Know Anymore" featuring Michael McDonald would have made a better single.

ReduxRating:  4/10

Trivia:  Cross' self-titled debut album had the unusual cover painting of a flamingo. The painting was done years earlier by a band member and it hung in their rehearsal space. They had thought it should be the cover of the first album they do. When Cross signed to Warner Bros. and recorded his debut album, the flamingo did end up being the cover. Since then, it has turned into a logo of sorts for Cross and has been on each of his subsequent albums.
