"Love in the First Degree" by Alabama

Song#:  0817
Date:  11/14/1981
Debut:  90
Peak:  15
Weeks:  21
Genre:  Crossover Country, Adult Contemporary

Pop Bits:  The group's third single from their "Feels So Right" album bested the #20 peak of that title track to become their biggest hit on the pop chart. The song reached #5 at AC and was their fifth consecutive country #1.

ReduxReview:  This song hits that sweet spot between country and pop that was becoming more popular around this time through artists like Ronnie Milsap (which this song could have been easily done by). It's another terrific entry for them and one of their most popular hits.

ReduxRating:  7/10

Trivia:  The album would eventually go multi-platinum and although it wouldn't be their biggest selling LP overall, it was tops in longevity on the pop album chart. The title spent more than three years on the chart.
