One Hit Wonders of the ’80s: 1985 – Jack Wagner

“All I Need” by Jack Wagner

Jack Wagner was best known for playing Frisco Jones on General Hospital. Some younger people may remember him as Dr. Peter Burns on Melrose Place. In 1984, Wagner, who had been playing guitar since he was 14, released the album All I Need. The title track “All I Need” proved to be Wagner’s only Top 40 hit, peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on January 12, 1985. It was #2 for two weeks, unable to knock Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” from the top spot. Wagner has recorded a total of five albums, bu “All I Need” remains his only hit.

  1. And now my mother and other fans of “The Bold And The Beautiful” can see Jack Wagner on that soap opera. One of the main characters is played by Ronn Moss, who was in the 70s band Player. Quite the pop connection, huh?

    Another very good song today!
