Whatever We Started…


Chances are you know who Richard Marx is.  He’s had many hits over the years.  Usually torch songs, my favorite kind of song.  You may recall two of them: “Right Here Waiting” and “Hazard.”  If you’d like to revisit these two incomparable ballads and give a new listen, I’ve included links to them hereinbelow.  But as it is, Richard Marx is coming out with a new album in July.  So to begin, here is the first release and hit from that new album.  Yes, it’s a ballad.  And of course, a torch song.  And also of course…beautiful.

Just scroll down a couple clicks on his home page and there it is.  Immense sonic beauty to enjoy over and over for free!

HAZARD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdmHHoI9beM


There is more to Richard Marx than just the mega-hit torch song I sent everyone here yesterday.  Marx is also quite the storyteller as proven by this dark, beautifully haunting ballad called HAZARD.  The song tells an unusual tale of a love gone terribly wrong.  And I’ve included a link to explain the meaning of the song and its story.  There is no singer quite like raspy-voice songwriter Richard Marx.  And no song quite like HAZARD.  Enjoy!

P.S.  Don’t forget to notice the cameo appearance of Robert Conrad in the video, the star of the ’60s hit series THE WILD, WILD WEST in which Richard Marx’ father used to guest-star.  This might be a case where the video is almost as good as the song!
