BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986
“Who Says” was the second single lifted from the album22B3 a classic AOR (Adult Oriented Rock) track produced by Mike Chapman. The single peaked at #79 on the hot 100.
After Device disbanded, Holly Knight released a 1988 self-titled solo album featuring the single “Heart Don’t Fail Me Now” and her own version of “Love Is a Battlefield,” which she had written for Benatar, and continued writing songs for other performers.
Paul Engemann, who previously sang on soundtrack cuts produced by Giorgio Moroder, joined Animotion. He took over for the original lead singer, Bill Wadhams, and sang opposite Cynthia Rhodes on Animotion’s 1989 Top Ten hit “Room to Move.” Coincidentally, Knight had recorded the original version of Animotion’s biggest hit, “Obsession,” as a duet with Michael Des Barres; the two co-wrote the song, which appeared on the soundtrack to the 1983 film A Night in Heaven.
