Hit Rewind to 1989: “Across the Miles” by Survivor

  • Weeks on Billboard Hot 100:  6
  • Highest Chart Position:  74
  • From the “Too Hot To Sleep” album

“Across the Miles is the second single from Too Hot to Sleep is the seventh album from rock band Survivor, released in 1988.  It was a relative commercial disappointment, reaching only #187 on the Billboard album charts, though “Across The Miles” is one of their biggest AC chart hits.


Check out this song along in my Spotify playlist from 1989:


This blog is all about respect, appreciation and love for all things 80s.  Growing up in the “Decade of Excess”, music played a major role in my life.  Many times, I found myself loving album tracks or singles that failed to crack the Billboard Top 40 lists each week.  30 years later,  we have this blog (and my list of 1,960 singles) to rewind and share all of the songs that were released as singles, but failed to crack the Billboard Top 40.

I appreciate all of your comments, feedback, stories….and more selfishly, your likes, retweets and mentions on social media.
