"Snake Eyes" by Alan Parsons Project

Song#:  0781
Date:  10/17/1981
Debut:  86
Peak:  67
Weeks:  5
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  The Project was having their best success yet with two singles from their "The Turn of a Friendly Card" album reaching the Top 20: "Games People Play" (#16) and "Time" (#15). The singles helped the album get to #13 on the chart and reach platinum status - their second to do so. This third single was issued from the LP, but it couldn't match the success of the others.

ReduxReview:  Not known for being a singles band, getting two songs in the Top 20 was probably unexpected. So another follow-up was probably necessary and this one may have had the best shot even though it's not really a great singles song. It works well on the album, but on its own it just wasn't as strong as the other two hits.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  The title track of the album is actually a suite that is made up of five different songs. "Snake Eyes" is the second song in the suite.
