Mary's Prayer - Danny Wilson - 1987 - Pop/80s

The Professor Of Rock called this one of the greatest hidden gems of the 1980s. Absolutely! Hidden is right! Just try to find this song on streaming music services. I really had to go fishing to find this one. Not sure why this song is so hard to find. It’s been a major part of some movie soundtracks, including “There’s Something About Mary”.

The band broke up long ago, each member going in different directions. The bass player on the original, Ged Grimes, joined Simple Minds. The singer-songwriter went on to work with Natalie Imbruglia, Demi Lovato, and others.

This remains an amazing song and I have to confess that, when I hear those first 3 words, I can’t turn off the song until the end.
