Song Of The Week #51 Stryper – Calling On You
Hi again, I celebrate long holidays now, but this week I’d like to highlight Stryper’s most-known song, christian glam metal rocks!
Stryper – Calling On You
Band, song and their albums are very specific and uncommon, their style is a sum of christian and glam metal (take a look at my previous article about Stryper), maybe for some people this blend is too hard to believe, but you must check it on your own.
‘Calling On You’ was recorded in 1986 – most successful year for glam metal and I bet that you’ll see why, watching video 😛
Song firstly placed on ‘To Hell with the Devil‘ album and is one of their most popular singles.
- Michael Sweet — lead vocals, guitar
- Oz Fox — lead guitar
- Tim Gaines — bass
- Robert Sweet — drums
‘Calling On You’ Popularity
Well, whole album was a big commercial success – (#32 on Billboard 200 in 1987) it achieved ‘Platinum‘ and nomination to Grammy award, song also was placed #5 on Dial MTV, ‘Calling On You’ was never charted on Billboard 200.
