Ride Like the Wind – Christopher Cross

18 Mar

“Ride Like the Wind” is a song written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Christopher Cross. It was released in February 1980 as the lead single from his Grammy-winning self-titled debut album. It reached number 2 on the US charts for four consecutive weeks, behind Blondie’s “Call Me”.

On the album’s inner sleeve, Christopher Cross dedicated this song to Lowell George, formerly of the band Little Feat, who had died in 1979. It features backing vocals by Michael McDonald and a guitar solo by Cross.

    Wow, that was a great month for music. Thanks for this, I haven’t thought of that song in ages, and it’s fantastic. I loved the Blondie tune too. Have a terrific Tuesday. Hugs.

    The melody and it’s uplifting lyrics of this song makes me want to get out of town for some reason.

    Another great article about Christopher Cross, I never get tired of him and “Yacht Rock” (also with Michael McDonald, Boz Scaggs, Hall & Oates, and of course Kenny Loggins). I’m glad that most of the Yacht Rock musicians have realized that it’s brought them a great deal of attention from a new generation.
