If Ever You’re In My Arms Again
“If Ever You’re in My Arms Again”- 1984
Music: Tom Snow, Michael Masser
Lyric: Cynthia Weil
Song History: Recorded by R&B singer Peabo Bryson. Released as a single from his album Straight from the Heart, the single became Bryson’s first Top 10 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it peaked at #10 during the summer of 1984. It also peaked at #6 on the R&B chart, and it spent four weeks at #1 on the adult contemporary chart.
Author’s Note: My only collaboration with Michael Masser resulted in a strong melody but another composer-lite lyric. Whatever he and I came up with (I can’t remember our title) was tossed in favor of letting a real lyricist to write the words. Shrewd move.Click here to listen
