Break the stride...

Very little information about Matthew Wilder, except that he is an American singer-songwriter who will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the title “Break my stride” released in 1983. Single which will experience a nice success on a planetary level that year.

As such, he deserved this article.

To discover or rediscover.

1982 ... a first title which allows the singer to offer himself a beginning of recognition. Certainly there is still work to be done but the beginnings are rather encouraging

1983 ... then comes THIS title. The title of a lifetime, the one that propels One Shot to the height of fame and offers a free ticket to posterity. HU-GE !

1983 ... as often in these cases, impossible to repeat the feat in stride. The singer plunges directly into the depths of the Charts and this despite a title of certain quality. Hard law of the trade ...

1984 ... furtive return of success thanks to this particularly punchy title and in a style so typical of the mid-1980s. A model of its kind !

1985 ... an ephemeral career to say the least, which lasted only 3 years but which nevertheless produced one of the biggest hits of the decade. It's already that !
