Christopher Cross

Christopher Cross was by far the biggest new star of 1980, virtually defining adult contemporary radio with a series of smoothly sophisticated ballads including the #1 hit, “Sailing.” Christopher Cross’ 1980 self-titled debut album with the lead single “Ride Like the Wind” rocketed to the #2 spot; the massive success of the second single “Sailing” made Cross a superstar, and in the wake of two more Top 20 hits, “Never Be the Same” and “Say You'll Be Mine,” he walked off with an unprecedented and record-setting five Grammys in 1981, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year for “Sailing.” He soon scored a second #1, as well as an Academy Award, with “Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do),” which he co-wrote with Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager, and Peter Allen for the smash Dudley Moore film comedy Arthur.
