Far From Over (Frank Stallone)
#10 on the US Hot 100
Being the younger brother of Staying Alive co-writer/director Sylvester Stallone is likely what netted Frank both a role in the sequel to Saturday Night Fever and as writer/performer of much side B of the soundtrack. It wasn’t nepotism that took this song into the top 10, however, or earned Frank Golden Globe and Grammy nominations for it.
Fun fact: Follow up single Darlin’ only peaked at #81 (but it’s well worth a listen).
