He just wanted to have fun...




Few interesting information about Robert Hazard except the fact that he was an American singer who will remain mainly in the musical history of this end of the 20th century for the high-caliber single "Escalator of life", title which will be released in 1982.


But who will also stay in history for having been the one who composed the title "Girls just want to have fun" in 1979, a title that will bring fame and fortune to Cyndi Lauper when she takes it up on her own in 1983.


For this reason alone, we had to devote this article to him.


Singer who died at the age of 59 on August 5, 2008 following pancreatic cancer.


To discover or rediscover.

1979...who could have imagined that this first title by the artist would become a few years later one of the most striking titles of the end of the 20th century ? Not many people, that's for sure...



1983...between the original title and what the young Cyndi will do with it, there is an ocean, to say the least...even a galaxy !



1982... as much as his first title will have gone unnoticed, at least for him, as much this one will already make much more talk. So much so that it offers the singer the biggest success of his entire career. HU-GE !



1982...a year 1982 which will undoubtedly remain as its best Vintage with this second hit in stride. When it wants, it wants !



1982...even if this one will make much less talk, the year will have been beautiful from all points of view. Not sure that the years to come will be so favorable to him unfortunately...



1984... he will be unable to reproduce the feat achieved on 'Escalator of life' and the sequel will be a little more complicated to manage than expected...



1984... too bad because it really started off in an ideal way. A start can be too shattering which will not give him time to settle in the long term...



1986... the adventure certainly continues but far, very far, from the frontrunners. A reversal of the situation, to say the least incomprehensible...



1986...his last major title of the decade. He will continue to produce other albums thereafter but none will capture the light...



2007...it's clear that it's not really the one we knew two decades ago. But he's still there anyway...



2007... not for very long unfortunately because fate will soon knock on his door. And when it strikes it will not be a harbinger of good news, quite the contrary...
