BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984
“Easy Lover” is a song written by Philip Bailey, Phil Collins, and Nathan East, and accredited to both singers Bailey and Collins when released as a single. The song appeared on Bailey’s solo album Chinese Wall. Collins has also performed the song in his live shows and it appears on his 1990 album Serious Hits… Live!, as well as his 1998 compilation album, …Hits.
The song was a hit in the UK, reaching #1 and staying there for four weeks and also reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US. “Easy Lover” was very successful commercially, selling over a million copies. It has only been certified Gold — not Platinum — since the RIAA requirement for a Platinum single wasn’t lowered to 1,000,000 units until 1989.
“Easy Lover” won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Overall Performance in 1985 and was Grammy nominated for Best Pop Vocal Performance By A Duo or Group.
