The UK’s top single of 1977 is a song believed by many to be one of the greatest one-hit-wonders released, but a truly beautiful song nonetheless.
“Don’t Give Up On Us” capitalized on David Soul’s stardom from “Starsky and Hutch,” resulting in the track rapidly rising up the charts in 1977. The smash-hit held its place for four weeks later, becoming known as one of the greatest one-hit-wonders ever made.
This may have been the only US hit from the Starsky and Hutch actor-singer sensation, but he managed to land “Silver Lady” and “Going In With My Eyes Wide Open” in the UK.
The beautiful adult contemporary hit withholds its pleasing soft rock sound well throughout the ages, sounding just as soothing and uplifting today. With this track, David Soul proved to the world that he was far more than an actor alone.
