Michael Damian – Rock On (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 2nd August 2010

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989


REQUEST

“Rock On” is a song that was composed and sung by English singer/songwriter David Essex in 1973. In March of 1974, it was a Top 5 song (reaching the #5 position) on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop-music chart. It was Essex’s only Billboard Top 40 hit.

“Rock On” was covered by soap opera star and singer Michael Damian in 1989 and featured in the teen film, Dream a Little Dream, starring Corey Haim and Corey Feldman, among others.

Damian’s version, which he also released from his independent album Where Do We Go From Here on the Cypress Records label, which A&M Records distributed, was a harder-edged interpretation that employed none of the vocal or instrumental distortion Essex’s version had used. It reached the #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, thus outperforming Essex’s original Billboard ranking. However, the song did get to #1 for Essex in ’74 on the US Cashbox charts, the same week it was at #11 on the Billboard Charts.

This version was ranked #99 on VH1’s 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80s (despite the fact that Damian actually had four Billboard charting singles during the ’80s).
