Carried by the wind ...


Christopher Charles Geppert, better known as Christopher Cross, is an American singer who took his first steps as an artist in the group "Flash". It was in 1979 that he decided to start a solo career and released his first album called… Christopher Cross. And it's a triumph ! Especially with flagship titles like "Sailing" and "Ride like the wind". A triumph that brought him the triumph of 5 Grammy Awards (Single of the year, Album of the year, Revelation of the year, ...) and he remains to this day the only singer to have achieved such a feat. The second album "Another page" released in 1983 was also a success with the singles "All right" and "Think of Laura". Other albums will follow without experiencing the same success, stopping the meteoric career of this gifted artist...

Clips :


1980...first title and worldwide jackpot directly ! The young singer delivers here a HUGE title which will reveal him and hoist him overnight to the rank of planetary star, just that !



1980...he does it again and gives us this WONDER, quite simply one of the most beautiful ballads of the decade. THE title that consecrates him and makes him definitively enter One Shot in the musical legend of the 80s. MAS-TER-FUL !



1980... a light and ethereal sequel. And always this extraordinary voice which sublimates the whole thing and which makes this artist a real extra-terrestrial...



1980...in the same vein. A 4th title to end in style a truly exceptional year for him and which will have consecrated him as one of the biggest revelations of the moment...



1980... there is still one title left for this year 1980 but it will only be released in Japan, hence the most limited influence of course...



1981...he does it again a year later with this new ballad of very high caliber which will remain as his highest ranked title of all. All for the soundtrack of a short film that will not remain as the masterpiece of the decade, that's for sure. The title, on the other hand, will not go unnoticed, far from it !



1983...new planetary mega hit, one more ! The years pass and the hits follow one another thanks to an unfailing inspiration. What talent !



1983...difficult for this title to compete with the previous steamroller as the bar has been set high. And this despite a certain quality...



1983...definitely specialized in charming ballads, a field in which he excels ! But as he excels in everything, everything he produces is successful no matter what...



1984... he signs here the official theme of the 1984 Olympic Games, just that. Mighty reference on a CV for one of the most gifted artists of his generation...



1985...unfortunately the machine will start to seize up in the middle of the 80s. While we thought he was on his way to smash everything for decades, fate will somewhat curb his ardor in an inexplicable way to say the least ...



1985...it only took a drop of inspiration to send him back to a very limited level of success. A sanction that we would not have imagined as violent...



1986...the titles follow one another without the singer managing to reverse the trend. In just one year he will have plummeted in a spectacular way...



1986...a mid-decade much more difficult to negotiate than expected even if business picks up somewhat with this title. It's also hard to be on top all the time...



1988... the titles which pass 'through' multiply without he's being able to stop the slow but irreversible deceleration which began in the middle of the decade. Hard law of the trade...



1988...return in force and in duo on this magnificent Ultimate Slow. Return to grace or temporary return of inspiration ? The future will tell us...



1991...the return to grace was very stealthy, to say the least. This beginning of the 90s does not in any way confirm the resurgence of success observed on the previous title, despite this title of more than certain quality...



1991... a little more than 10 years after his sensational debut on the international scene, it is clear that the artist has not been able to capitalize on the enormous success encountered at the very beginning of his career. Incomprehensible...



1993...a title produced two years earlier but not released until 1993. Whether it was released in 1991 or 1993 unfortunately won't change much in terms of success, or rather lack of success...



1993...a 90s decade that will see the artist disappear from the radar almost definitively. How could he have come to this with such talent...?!



1994... the albums still work a little bit but the success is still very limited, despite all his efforts. On the Singles side, it's even worse unfortunately...



1994...and yet he is far from unworthy. Quality is always essential but he has not been able to reinvent himself in this new decade and is paying a high price for it...



1994... anyway he can always count on his basic fans who continue to follow him. It's always better than nothing as they say...



1998... him in any case continues to believe in it and says to himself that everything is still possible. Afterwards, rightly or wrongly, that's something else and it's the future that will tell us if he's right or not...



1998...the only thing we can blame him for is that he failed to adapt to the very latest musical trends of the moment. Really unfortunate...



1998... afterwards, as long as he enjoys doing what he does, why would he throw in the towel prematurely...? And frankly, who would blame him...



2007...we will lose sight of it for almost 9 years and here he is back in Christmas Album mode. Very often, when things go wrong, the artists do either the luxury cover or the Christmas album. He will have chosen the 2nd solution...



2007...indisputably his revisited versions of ultra-famous Christmas titles are not devoid of interest, far from it. But that won't be enough to bring him back into the race again...



2011...and here he is again 4 years later, still just as motivated to move forward. A desire to believe in it to the end which undoubtedly commands respect...



2011 ... he is still nearly 40 years of career which is not nothing. Even if he left the front of the leading pack a long time ago, he is still there in any case...



2011...in a style that still does not correspond to the latest musical developments of the moment, he continues his merry way slowly but surely. For how long, good question...



2014...the production of albums remains impressive, despite the total absence of success in the Charts. He doesn't care anyway...



2014...he will go all the way and it doesn't matter what the end result is. The main thing is that he is supported at least by his basic fans, that's all he asks...



2014...he is right to believe in it again and again because other artists from the 80s like him are coming back in force during this decade of 2010. Who would have thought it possible...



2017...new opus and therefore new hopes. There will be no real improvement on the Charts side but he will have at least tried, who would blame him...



2017... whatever it is, we continue to take everything it offers us with a certain interest. Even if the level of inspiration isn't quite what it used to be, that doesn't prevent him from continuing to produce titles of certain quality...



2017 ... so we imagine that this title will surely not be the last. Because we now know with him, everything is always possible. To be continued...
