“Just Between You and Me” was the lead-off single for Lou Gramm’s second solo album, Long Hard Look. The single was released in North America on October 28, 1989, and it peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
This was another song that was released during my freshman year of high school. This AOR track also had a very strong pop hook to it, and it’s one of those songs I fell in love with rather quickly after hearing it for the first time. I just love how the music and Lou’s voice convey the emotion of the lyrics. It’s a song I really liked at the time, and it’s a song that’s really withstood the test of time. I enjoy it just as much now as I did when it first came out almost 25 years ago.
The music video to accompany the song was in black and white, and it features shots of Lou Gramm lip-syncing the song with shots of a couple going through both good and bad times in their relationship. I always thought that the “story” of the couple really helped to illustrate the song in the video.
