    Eddie Schwartz reached the Canadian top 40 several times with 4 other songs: 'All Our Tomorrows' (which became his only American top 40 hit), 'Does A Fool Ever Learn?' (which would also become a popular favourite by Helix), 'Over the Line' and 'Strike'

    He also wrote the 1980 Pat Benatar hit 'Hit Me With Your Best Shot'

    Right Beside You - Billy Newton Davis (1986)
    Billy is actually American. He came to Canada in the mid-80's to replace one of the deceased members of the NYLONS.

    Therefore Billy is an Honourary Canadian!

    I love that song. There was a radio station where I used to live that played that every friday at 5 pm. It was the ultimate way to kick off the weekend!

    eye eye

    ahhh the 80's... i was just doing a search and thought "I wonder if the history of eye eye is anywhere online"? Alas, this is the only reference I found. Why would I be curious? I was the lead singer and front man when the band won the Q107 in 1984. Glorry days... great board here.. keep the 80's alive!

    Re: Canadian One Hit Wonders ...

    Greetings, folks. First time poster, try to be gentle, OK? Really enjoying the flashbacks I'm getting by reading through all these artists and song titles - geez, it's like being back in high school again. Whistledog, I'm really enjoying your postings but I got two one-hit wonders you may or may not remember:

    "It Doesn't Matter" by Coleman Wilde. It was used for Foster's beer TV commercials in 1989, and actually got radio airplay in Southern Ontario. Go figure. I scanned the front and rear of the 45 jacket for your enjoyment. See attached.

    "Turn Of The Wheel" by Mary-Lu Zahalan. I've got a 45 of that song, released in 1983. Mary-Lu is still in the Canadian music industry today, as a producer. See attached.

    I still can't believe you pulled that Graham Shaw and the Sincere Serenaders out of thin air like that. I thought nobody remembered that song except me.

    Just thought of another one - what about "Boys Of Autumn" by David Roberts (1982) ? He's a session singer noted for his work with bands like Toto and other big acts, but collaborated a lot with Lee Aaron here in Canada. I'd love to get my hands on his one and only LP, "All Dressed Up." Most of the guys from Toto turned up as players on his album. "Boys of Autumn" is wicked smooth in production. I found a copy of it on the Web the other day after looking for about two years.

    My faves from the Canadian 80's:

    Coney Hatch - Hey Operator
    April Wine - Enough is Enough
    Toronto - Girl's Night Out
    Headpins - One More Time
    Grapes of Wrath - What Was Going Through My Head
    The Box - Must I Always Remember
    Strange Advance - We Run
    Frozen Ghost - Should I See
    ... plus so many more...

    Keep up the good memories, everyone. I'm really enjoying it!

    OMG Coleman Wilde. I haven't heard that in years.

    Every Canadian should remember Graham Shaw. That track was one of the best Canadian songs of 1980. 1980 was an excellent year for Canadian hits... some of my favourite Canadian songs were top 40 hits that year:

    Leaving For Maui - Footloose
    Young and Restless - Prism
    It's Time (Chapter Three) - Saga
    Goodbye LA - Bob Segarini
    Innocence - Harlequin
    All the Tea in China - Susan Jacks
    Amour (Tu Es Ma Papillon) - Baron Longfellow

    Graham Shaw had a helping hand in one of the greatest Canadian albums of 1990: Absolutely by Rik Emmett

    He started in the band 'Surrender' and hit the Canadian top 40 twice in 1982 with It's All Been Done Before and Start Again, both of which he re-recorded for his 1984 debut album that also had We Should Be Lovers. From what I remember, his most successful hit (apart from his appearance on Northern Lights - Tears Are Not Enough) was Nothing Could Stand in Your Way in 1986

    Well Michael, if the others don't remeber you, I certainly do. Eye Eye was one of many bands that came out of some those great radio station talent contest in the 80's.

    Curious what the rest of the band members have been up to? ... if you're intersted in jamming and re-playing some of those Canadian 80's classics, give me a shout ...

    BTW ... follow this link ... http://jam.canoe.ca/Music/Pop_Encycl...E/Eye_Eye.html
    I believe you'll find the information pretty accurate

    I'm trying to find a song....but all I can remember is the video....

    ...black and white video...male duo...one with big, big, curly black hair...the other had short blond hair...

    it was some sappy ballad where they were wandering on the streets or singing at each other in a loft type space.

    this has been driving me up the wall...anyone?

    Re: Canadian One Hit Wonders ...

    I was just reading some of these and had to make a correction. Idle Eyes did sing the song Tokyo Rose but not Promises Promises which was done by The Naked Eyes who's major hit was Always Something There To Remind Me. As for Canadian one hit wonders how about Aldo Nova "Fantasy" or The Kings "This Beat Goes On/Switchin To Glide"

    Re: Canadian One Hit Wonders ...

    "This Beat Gose On/"Switchin To Glide" is my fave song. I've got it on vinyl but want to find it on Cd. I've never been able to find the ful version on Cd. They either just put the "Switchin To Glide part on only, or They put "This Beat Gose On, seperate the 2 song medly by sticking another song in between and then putting "Switchin To Glide af that. It really makes me mad. To me that's sacrelig. I'm also looking for the album by Chilawack called "Want To Be A Star." Please excuse the spelling. I know it wasn't right. Anyone know where I can find those two? Hope all of that made sence.

    Re: Canadian One Hit Wonders ...

    "This Beat Goes On/Switching To Glide" was released in 1980 by The Kings. I have the full version of the song (both halves, not separated) on an all-Canadian song collection, a 4-CD box set called "Oh What A Feeling Vol. 2." It's a limited edition box set and no longer available, so don't try looking unless someone is selling their copy on eBay. I share your feelings about the song, it's a good crank-it-in-the-car-with-the-windows-down song.

    Re: Canadian One Hit Wonders ...

    Thanks for the help. I know you said not to go looking for it, but I'm a stubern record and Cd collector, and I know myself too well. I'll probably try to hunt it down. Thanks again.
