One Hit Wonders of the ’80s: 1984 – Scandal

“The Warrior” by Scandal


I was surprised to find out that Scandal was a one hit wonder. I do Like “Goodbye to You” a lot. But it only reached #65 on the charts. Oh well, so twist my arm! I have to include “The Warrior” as a one-hit wonder for Scandal.

Scandal was formed in New York City in 1981 by guitarist Zack Smith, who also wrote most of the band’s hits. The other initial members included: bassist Ivan Elias (1950–1995), guitarist Keith Mack, guitarist Jon Bon Jovi (briefly), keyboardist Benjy King, drummer Frankie LaRocka, and, of course, vocalist Patty Smyth. Thommy Price later replaced LaRocka on drums.

But, the band was slowly losing member after member. By the time The Warrior tour started in 1984, the only original members were Patty Smyth and Keith Mack. That did not stop the song from being a huge hit. It peaked at #7 on the charts on September 22, 1984. Shortly after the tour, Scandal officially broke up.

The group (minus Ivan Elias, who died of cancer in June 1995) reunited in 2004 for VH1’s Bands Reunited show and did a string of concerts on the United States East Coast. Patty Smyth and Scandal have toured in the time since then, and have recorded some new songs. It would be great to see them on the charts again. But in the meantime, let’s enjoy “The Warrior”:
