"Another Sleepless Night" by Anne Murray

Song#:  0893
Date:  01/30/1982
Debut:  88
Peak:  44
Weeks:  9
Genre:  Adult Contemporary, Country Crossover

Pop Bits:  Murray's fourth single from her "Where Do You Go When You Dream" album was another hit at country, reaching #4, and a solid entry at AC going to #11. The song almost got her back into the pop Top 40, but fell just shy. She would have a couple more singles reach the pop chart, but this one would be her last to get near to the Top 40.

ReduxReview:  After a slew of mid-tempo ballads, Murray amps it up a bit (well, "amps" may be a little strong in Murray's case) with this jovial tune. This type of pop/country is not something I typically like, but there is something about a bouncy song like this that just creates a happy feeling. I don't think it is a great song in anyway, but I ain't mad at it.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  The Juno award is the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy award. Murray still holds the record for the most Juno awards ever won. Out of her 52 nominations over the years, she has picked up 24 awards. Celine Dion follows her with 20 wins.
