Can’t We Try (Dan Hill and Vonda Shepherd)
1987
#6 on the US Hot 100
Dan Hill’s biggest hit – Sometimes When We Touch – likely overshadows this song as does Shepherd’s turn on the TV show Ally McBeal. The duet came about when Hill’s then wife suggested adding a female voice to the song, which sounded one-sided with only Hill singing – it needed the other partner’s perspective. Hill heard Shepherd singing in the studio and immediately knew she was the perfect fit.
Fun fact: Although Hill is Canadian this song didn’t perform as well in his home country, peaking at #14.

The theme for Bestest Song Club November 2015: Top 10 Hits That You Probably Haven’t Heard In Years. Criteria – Songs that reached at least #10 on the US Hot 100 between 1 January 1980 and 31 December 1989 but tend to get overlooked in any “Best of the 1980s” lists and collections.
