Christopher Cross made history with his 1980 self-titled debut album by winning —for the first time ever—the four most prestigious awards: Record of the Year (for the single “Sailing”), Album of the Year, Song of the Year (also for “Sailing”), and Best New Artist. He co-wrote "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" with Burt Bacharach, Carol Bayer Sager and Peter Allen, which won an Oscar for Best Original Song in 1981. Song is best known for line "when you get lost between the moon and New York City, the best that you can do is fall in love."
Los Angeles Times excerpt: "Everything I touched turned to gold back then," says Christopher Cross. "I was thinking, 'Hey, I've got everybody fooled into thinking I'm good.' Winning all those Grammys was tough, because it fostered some resentment, like, 'Who is this newcomer to win all these awards?' It was a tremendous burden for me to try and follow up that success. It weighed heavily on my soul, and affected the quality of my work."

Indeed, Cross made four albums from 1984 to 1994, which together sold a mere fraction of his debut. "My success was so meteoric that it put me on a perch I found hard to stay on," says the singer, who lives in Montecito, Santa Barbara County, CA.
