Don't panic, Capt Mainwaring- I'm not going to war on our govt or pathetic, publicity-hungry celebs Laughing

I heard a snippet of a song, the chorus of which (and I assume the title, also) was "I Am The Warrior" sung by a healthily-lunged lady, that I didn't hear well enough to put a name to.

Does anyone know the song and artist in question?

Be grateful if you could help out, oh denizens of the deepest waters of R2OK, then hopefully I can add said tune to my collection.

Thanks in anticipation Cool

PJ

I don't know it, but by Googling and reference to the Billboard Book of Top 40 US Hits I can tell you that it's called The Warrior, by Scandal featuring Patty Smyth (not to be confused with Patti Smith) and was a Top Ten hit over there in July 1984. It was written by Nick (Hot Child In The City) Gilder and Holly (Love Is A Battlefield) Knight.

Eight years later Smyth teamed up with Don Henley for an even bigger hit, Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough, which managed to make No 22 here in the UK.

Wow, much thanks for the research, Ron- great stuff!

I've just Wiki-ed Scandal & Patty Smyth and it turns out she is now married to John MacEnroe (yeah, that one!) and the bands guitarist, briefly, in 1981 was Jon Bon Jovi Laughing

Cheers for that Wink
