“More Than Words Can Say” by Alias – Classic Hit or Miss

“More Than Words Can Say” became a #2 hit in the United States, and reached #1 in Canada in 1990.

BMI presented the lead vocalist / songwriter Freddy Curci with the “Million-airs award” for “More Than Words Can Say”. According to BMI’s web site, only 1,500 songs have achieved Million-air status (one million air plays) among the 4.5 million songs by 300,000 BMI represented artists. One million performances is the equivalent of approximately 50,000 broadcast hours, or more than 5.7 years of continuous airplay.

“More Than Words Can Say” was written, arranged and co-produced by former Sheriff vocalist Freddy Curci and guitarist Steve DeMarchi. At the time, their dissolved band had hit number one with “When I’m With You”, and the other band members had refused to come back together. Sensing the need to follow up the hit, Curci and DeMarchi joined ex-Heart members, guitarist Roger Fisher, bassist Steve Fossen, and drummer Mike Derosier to form Alias. This tune, bearing striking similarities to “When I’m With You” (including a sustained last note), was a result.

“More Than Words Can Say” was released as the first single of Alias’ self-titled debut album. It entered the Hot 100 at #84 and reached the Top Ten four weeks later. in 1990, it peaked at number two. It also peaked at number two on the adult contemporary chart and at number 13 on the Mainstream rock chart.
