Donny Osmond – Soldier Of Love (German 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on August 26th, 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

“Soldier of Love” is a 1989 song by Donny Osmond, which became his comeback hit.

Fearing that the public were not going to buy a new Donny Osmond record, his label decided to release the single with no indication of who the artist was, and radio stations advertised it as being from a “mystery artist”[1]. It gained in popularity and helped send the song to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 on its 8th week in the Top 40.

The song is set to a post-disco beat. Songwriters are Carl Sturken and Evan Rogers. The music video for the song was directed by Michael Bay, becoming the director’s first official project.

    The biggest of the lot!
    It’s good karma for Evans and Carl for helping Donny regain Pop Glory as they also reached #2 three years later as Rythm Syndicate with PASSION.
    I remember being elated when you posted On The Shelf, and I really enjoyed your current Donny series, Paul.
    Makes me yearn for Puppy Love all of a sudden. LOL!
