The Adventures of Air Supply

To Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell, she was always the woman. I seldom heard them mention her under any other name. In their eyes she eclipsed and predominated the whole of her sex. It was not that they felt any emotion akin to love for her. All emotions, and that one particularly, were abhorrent to their cold, precise but admirably balanced minds. They were, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machines that the world had seen, but as lovers they surely would have put themselves in a false position.

"Every Woman In The World" reached # 5 (12/31/80) on the US charts. It was written by Dominic Bugatti and Frank Musker, and you can find it on pretty much every compilation they've ever released, or in it's original context on the album "Lost in Love", 1980.

Jason, sadly, it's a rip-off of "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" - I should have credited mr. Doyle... Very appropriate, though, don't you think?
