"Tryin' to Live My Life Without You" by Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band

Top 10 Alert!
Song#:  0743
Date:  09/12/1981
Debut:  61
Peak:  5
Weeks:  19
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  After his first and only #1 album, Against the Wind, Seger released the live LP Nine Tonight. Another multi-platinum seller, it reached #3 and spawned this Top 5 single. The album's title track was originally done as a studio track and included on the soundtrack to the film Urban Cowboy.

ReduxReview:  I didn't care for this song when it came out and wasn't into Seger's music either. I would change my mind later and develop an appreciation for Seger, but I'm still not 100% sold on this tune. I do like it much better these days, however I would not include it on a list of favorite Seger songs.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  This song was written by Eugene Williams and first recorded by R&B/blues singer Otis Clay. His single didn't reach the pop chart, but did hit #24 at R&B, which ended up being Clay's biggest entry on that chart.
