One Hit Wonders of the ’80s: 1983 – Frank Stallone

“Far From Over” by Frank Stallone

Arguably, “Far From Over” was the best part of Staying Alive, the sequel to Saturday Night Fever. Frank Stallone (younger brother of Sylvester Stallone) wrote the song along with Vince DiCola. “Far From Over” peaked at #10 on October 1, 1983. It was nominated for a Golden Globe award for Best Original Song from a Motion Picture and a Grammy Award for Best Album of Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or Television Special.

Stallone has released several albums over the years. Being a huge Frank Sinatra fan, his albums have been Big Band/crooning style music. So, he has not had another major hit since “Far From Over”.
In 2008, he went on tour with his own Frank Stallone Band, which featured himself on lead vocals and rhythm guitar.

It seems like his chart-topping success is over. So let’s enjoy this awesome song – “Far From Over”:
