‘Don’t Give Up On Us’ by David Soul – Classic Hit or Miss

Riding high on the success of playing in the hit TV show Starsky and Hutch, Soul returned to one of his early career choices as a singer. His debut, the Tony Macaulay written and produced “Don’t Give Up on Us” was a worldwide smash, spending four weeks at #1 on the UK Singles Chart in January and February 1977 and a single week at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1977. In addition, the song spent one week at #1 on the U.S. adult contemporary chart.

“Don’t Give Up on Us” was rated #93 in VH1′s 100 Greatest One-hit Wonders due to the fact that, despite having more hits in the UK, Soul was never again able to reach the top forty in the US. Soul recorded a new version of the song in 2004, allegedly after being embarrassed when hearing it by chance in an elevator as sung by Owen Wilson in the film version of Starsky and Hutch.
