1985 Kim Carnes – Barking at Airplanes

Barking At Airplanes is the ninth studio album by Kim Carnes, released in 1985 (see 1985 in music).

Despite strong critical reviews, the album stopped short of the Top 50 on Billboard’s album chart and sold less than 200,000 copies.

The album spawned two hit singles, “Crazy in the Night (Barking at Airplanes)” and “Abadabadango”, which peaked at #15 and #67 on Billboard Magazine’s Hot 100, respectively. The 2001 reissue includes the Horn/Downes penned track “I Am a Camera”, which was previously recorded by Yes on their 1980 “Drama” album and by Downes and Horn themselves on the final Buggles album, Adventures in Modern Recording.
