DAY 80 GRAMMY CHASE: CROSSED-OUT

Day 80, I decided to go to the 80’s. One of the hottest acts back then was a guy named Christopher Cross and as fast as he came, he vanished out of sight even faster. I guess it’s the curse of being SOO damned good, or just plain lucky and the stars lined up. If you’re not familiar with the name, you’ll certainly recognize the song.

Christopher Cross pulled off an incredible magical-act at the 1980 23rd Grammy Awards. The guy came out of thin air as a new artist and nabbed 5 Grammy Awards in one night and not only that, but he walked away with the coveted BIG 4…(Best Album, Best Song, Best Record and Best New Artist) and the 5th award was for Best Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist. By the way, this cat also won and Oscar for Best Original Song for his work on the theme for the movie “Arthur.”

Unfortunately, the Grammy Genie only grants wishes like this ONCE in ones lifetime, for Christopher Cross soon fell into the abyss of the Forgotten, never to see the likes of the Grammy’s again.

In my closing comments, I leave you with 2 questions: The first should be obvious, “Where the HECK is Christopher now?” and “Who in the heck was his stylist?” There were stylists in the 80’s, but what’s up with dudes get up? He’s from San Antonio, TX, so I clearly see the Houston Oilers jersey connection, but errruhhh….Oh well…saaaiiiiling!
