There was a period in the late 80's-early 90's where Richard Marx was one of the biggest acts in pop music. His songs were not only Top 40 ready, but catered to the adult contemporary crowd as well.
Unfortunately, Marx appeared to have peaked in 1991 with the haunting story song, "Hazard", which was about an unsolved mystery. The attempt to address social issues was ignored by most folks.
Meanwhile, let's go back to 1988, when Marx ruled the charts, and celebrate the dog days of August with "Endless Summer Nights", an ode to the summers of our youth.
