Undercover Angel

"Singer-songwriter Alan O`Day died of cancer at his home in Westwood, Calif., his record label said. He was 72."

UPI

Alan O`Day was a singer-songwriter whose only claim to fame was writing and singing "Undercover Angel", a #1 hit in 1977.

O`Day sucked as a songwriter, and his only hit was the aforementioned "Undercover Angel", not exactly a pop classic.

But his #1 hit sticks to your mind like bubblegum on your shoe, when I read his obituary online, I remembered his sole hit even though I hadn`t heard it in decades.

Music is the soundtrack to our lives, an even the death of a one-hit wonder makes us sad.
