Another great video, this time of Paul Davis with his classic hit, “Cool Night” from 1981. This appearance on Solid Gold Classic (remember the Solid Gold Dancers?) is a “live”performance in that it is in front of a live TV audience, but not performed live, just lip-synced to the record. We tried to find a real “live” performance from back in the day, but no luck.
“Cool Night” was released in 1981 and is from the album of the same name. It peaked at No. 11 on the U.S. pop charts and got all the way up to No. 2 on the adult contemporary charts in January 1982.
