Styx – Boat On The River


Styx’ 1979 album Cornerstone yielded their only No. 1 hit, the DeYoung ballad “Babe.” By early 1980, “Babe” had become the band’s biggest international hit and first million-selling single, reaching number six in the United Kingdom. The album also included the No. 26 DeYoung hit “Why Me” and “Borrowed Time,” which was co-written with Shaw, plus Shaw’s “Boat on the River”, which was a hit in most of Europe. The popularity of the album helped win the band a People’s Choice Award for Best New Song in 1980. At the 22nd Grammy Awards, Styx received a nomination for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group, and Cornerstone’s engineers Gary Loizzo and Rob Kingsland were nominated for a Grammy for Best Engineered Recording.
