"All Those Lies" by Glenn Frey

Song#:  1281
Date:  12/11/1982
Debut:  73
Peak:  41
Weeks:  12
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  Having already gotten two Top 40 entries from his debut album "No Fun Allowed" including the #15 "The One You Love" (#2 AC), Frey tried for a third with this single. It came so close, but ended up peaking at the dreaded #41 spot.

ReduxReview:  This quiet jam slinks along just fine but I hear it more as an album track than a single. I'm actually surprised it almost popped into the Top 40. Frey never really won me over as much as Don Henley did, but he had a few good songs along the way. This wasn't one of them though.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  In addition to the three pop chart entries, Frey's album include two more songs that did well on the Mainstream Rock chart. "Partytown" hit the Top 10 at #5 and "Don't Give Up" reached #25. These songs along with the pop hits helped the album to gold status.
