1979 Barbra Streisand – Wet

Streisand, Barbra 1979Wet is an album released by Barbra Streisand in 1979. The album is a concept album of sorts with all the songs referring to, or expressing different interpretations of, water. Wet is also the first and the last word sung on the album.

The album was a major success for Barbra Streisand, due largely to the album’s #1 hit single, “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)”, a duet with disco queen Donna Summer which underwent a retitling and change of emphasis in order to qualify under the water theme.

The third track on the album, “Splish Splash,” is Barbra Streisand’s cover of the Bobby Darin classic, which featured background vocals by Toto lead singer Bobby Kimball.
