AIR SUPPLY

 

With their heavily orchestrated, sweet ballads, the Australian soft rock group Air Supply became a staple ’80s radio, scoring a string of seven straight top-five singles. Air Supply consists of duo Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell. 

 

Their first international exposure came in the late ’70s, when Rod Stewart had them as his opening act on a North American tour. Air Supply signed a record contract with Arista in 1980, releasing their first album by the end of the year. Lost in Love, their debut, was a major success in the US, selling over two million copies and spawning the hit singles Lost in Love, All Out of Love, and Every Woman in the World. The following year they released their second album, The One That You Love. The title track reached No 1 and it also featured two other top-ten hits, Here I Am (Just When I Thought I Was Over You) and Sweet Dreams. Their third album, Now and Forever featured the singles, Even the Nights Are Better, and Two Less Lonely People in the World, 

 

PATTY SMYTH AND SCANDAL

 

Patty Smyth and Scandal burst onto the music scene in 1982 with a No 1 MTV hit The Warrior selling over a million copies in the US and other hits that climbed into the top 20 Billboard charts.
