Christopher Cross' debut was a huge hit and widely acclaimed, at least among industry professionals critics didn't give it a second listen, leading to multi-platinum success and Grammys. In retrospect, it might seem like the kind of success that's disproportional to the record itself, especially to hipper-than-thou younger generations, but in truth, Christopher Cross was a hell of a record - it just was a hell of a soft rock record, something that doesn't carry a lot of weight among most audiences. Remember Christopher Cross In the early 1980s, his brand of silky-soft rock sailed up the charts. His songs were unavoidable on FM radio - and then as quickly as he burst on the scene, he seemed to vanish from it. His debut album, Christopher Cross, went platinum five times over in the U. alone, and practically swept the Grammys, beating out Billy Joel, Barbara Streisand, Pink Floyd and Frank Sinatra for Album of the Year. It was an out-of-body experience almost, Cross said, just to continually go up there and try to think of something to say. Three of the awards that night were for his introspective hit, Sailing, which according to Cross isn't actually about sailing. Christopher Cross originally released Sailing written by Christopher Cross and Christopher Cross released it on the album Christopher Cross in 1979. It was also covered by Ron Merritt, Gina Rendina, Fay Claassen
