Air Supply & John Waite

The quintessentially smooth soft rock hits of Australian duo Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock include “Lost in Love,” “All Out of Love,” “The One That You Love,” “Making Love Out of Nothing at All,” “Every Woman in the World,” “Even the Nights are Better,” “Just as I Am,” and many more.  With a string of hits like this, Air Supply wins the award for most prolific masters of the love song genre over the last 30 years.

As a solo artist and as the lead singer of The Babys and Bad English, John Waite was a fixture of album-oriented rock radio stations during the 70s and 80s.  He had a talent for power ballads and driving arena rock, occasionally touching on new wave styled power pop as well.  Several of Waite’s songs, including “Missing You,” The Babys’ “Isn’t It Time,” and Bad English’s “When I See You Smile” became radio staples.
