"Hard to Say" by Dan Fogelberg

Top 10 Alert!
Song#:  0728
Date:  08/29/1981
Debut:  72
Peak:  7
Weeks:  19
Genre:  Soft Rock

Pop Bits:  Fogelberg's first single from his "The Innocent Age" album, "Same Old Lang Syne" (#9), was oddly issued eight months prior to the release of the LP. After an extended wait, the album finally hit the streets and it coincided with this second single. It became his third Top 10 hit and also reached #2 on the AC chart.

ReduxReview:  I dunno sometimes. Based on what I typically liked back in the day, I hear this single now and wonder why I liked it so much. The tune's folk-rock sound wasn't something I normally gravitated toward, but something about it got my attention. I would actually say it is the song that really turned me into a Fogelberg fan. And I still love it. It's just a damn good song.

ReduxRating:  8/10

Trivia:  The backing vocals on this song were supplied by Glenn Frey of the Eagles.
