Musical Interlude: Kyrie (1985)

Mr. Mister produced only three albums between 1983-7, but the second album, 1985's "Welcome to the Real World", produced a trio of pop classics. "Broken Wings", "Is It Love" (used in the movie, "Stakeout"), & "Kyrie".

"Kyrie" struck a chord with me because of the prospect of religious connotations in the lyrics. "Kyrie Eleison" means "Lord, have mercy", and it's the closest thing to a mention of God in the song. I can picture any number of Christian artists covering it.

Bassist-vocalist Richard Page would later make a bit of a comeback as 1/2 of the combo 3rd Matinee after Mr. Mister folded at the end of the 80's, but 3rd Matinee lasted just the one album.
