Dang, I got so busy posting stuff about SAFT #7 that I almost forgot to do the countdown today. This was Billy's second solo album, and the one that brought him 'to the front' so to speak. His most popular 'hit' was the 'The Stroke', the first single released from this album. @teamfreak16 featured a song from this album (Lonely Is The Night) in one of his countdowns recently. Billy Squier - Don't Say No
In The Dark by Billy Squier. LYRICS: Life isn't easy from the singular side Down in the hole some emotions are hard to hide It's your decision it's a chance ...

Yes I thought I recognized Lonely is the Night from a previous post of yours. Squier hits your list again, a personal favorite perhaps? Of course, he merits the recognition, "In the Dark" is worthy as was his first hit "Stroke." Billy is "stroking" it man!

I'm a huge Billy Squier fan, and actually got front row seats at one of his concerts back in the late 80s. My kids seem to be taking a liking to his music as well.

Billy had a clause in his contract about if the venue he performed at misspelled his name, he would get 100% of the door receipts

My favorite hit of his was "My Kinda Lover." I hated "The Stroke" when it came out, but in hindsight I think it's a great indictment of the record industry.
