1985 Christopher Cross – Every Turn Of The World

Every Turn Of The World is the third studio album by Christopher Cross, recorded and released in 1985. The album is notable for its harder rocking sound and often lacking the pop ballads that dominated the sound of previous albums. Though the album itself peaked at No. 127 on the Billboard 200, the only single from the album to chart, “Charm the Snake”, peaked only at No. 68 on the Billboard Hot 100. The other two singles from the album, the title track and “Love Is Love (In Any Language)”, failed to chart.
