Songoftheday 6/5/17 - Sweet sugar pumping through my veins everywhere is on a wire, Sweet sugar you say it's just a game soon to be your one desire...

"Say A Prayer" - Breathe
from the album Peace Of Mind (1990)
Billboard Hot 100 peak: #21 (two weeks)
Weeks in the Top-40: 8

Today's song of the day comes from the British "sophisti-pop" group Breathe, who had scored a trio of top ten pop hits in America from their debut album All That Jazz with "Hands To Heaven", "How Can I Fall", and "Don't Tell Me Lies". In 1990 the trio of singer David Glasper, guitarist Marcus Lillington, and drummer Ian Spice released their sophomore album Peace Of Mind. While in the UK the song "Say Hello" came out to little results at #87 on the UK chart, the first single released in the states was the mid-tempo breezy adult pop of "Say A Prayer". Written by Glasper and Lillington, the track got a peppier remix for the radio version...

"Say A Prayer" became Breathe's fourth top-40 pop hit in the U.S. in October of 1990. The single also spent a week at #3 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary (or "easy listening") radio chart. In their native Britain, the song slipped on to the singles chart at #93 (their final hit there).

Up tomorrow: Let's get cold with the Michigan rapper that tried to convince us dee-dee dee dee-dee-dee dum was a thing.
