1980-68: Peter Brown, “Stargazer”

Not a bad song. Not a bad song at all. Just didn’t seem to catch on, peaking only at #59 in early 1980.

Brown had a little bit of chart success in the ’70s singing a few songs on his own, including the fairly popular “Do You Wanna Get Funky with Me?” but found massive success as one of the songwriters of Madonna’s “Material Girl” (see 1985-33).

Every time I hear this song I expect it to segue right into Gary Wright’s 1975 classic “Dream  Weaver.” Take a listen and you’ll understand.


Memorable lyric: “You gotta believe in something. You gotta have a dream. You gotta believe in someone and crazy as it seems you always believed in me.”
