Throwback Thursday 1992

Time for another round of Throwback Thursday!

This is where we get to listen to some great music from days gone by. 

Today’s music comes to us from 1992

Wikipedia tells us this about today’s tune:

"How Do You Talk to an Angel" is a song written by Steve Tyrell, Barry Coffing, and Stephanie Tyrell. It was the theme for the American TV series The Heights. The single was released with Jamie Walters as the lead singer, and it reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 on November 14, 1992, but the series was canceled exactly one week after the song fell from its number one position. Vocalists on the single included Shawn David Thompson, Cheryl Pollak, Charlotte Ross, as well as Zachary Throne from the Las Vegas rock band Sin City Sinners.

In 1993, the song was nominated for an Emmy Award for "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Music and Lyrics". The Emmy went to the song "Sorry I Asked" by Kander and Ebb from Liza Minnelli Live from Radio City Music Hall. No follow-up singles under The Heights name were ever released. Walters, the lead singer on the single and the lead actor on the show, later had a number-16 Hot 100 hit with his single "Hold On" in 1994. It was his only subsequent chart appearance.

See you again soon! Share with me your thoughts about this theme.  If you have a favorite oldies song or artist, let me know and I’d be happy to feature them.

You can now join in the fun! Just add your Throwback Thursday link to the list below.  Your song choice can be from any era, so long as it is at least 10 years old. 

Can’t get enough of the 80’s music scene? Be sure to tune in each day in April when I join the annual A to Z Challenge. It’s going to be totally awesome!


  1. Mary,

    I can't say that I remember the TV series or the song but I really enjoyed it, though. Too bad the program got cancelled. With ratings the song got you would've thought that it would do the same for the show. Maybe not. Thanks for the introduction and for hosting Throwback Thursdays, my friend!

  2. I know this song but not the show. Funny how that works. Speaking of TV Shows, Friends Theme song became quite the hit back in the 1990's(as if that is long agao...hahahaa).

  3. Never saw the show, but the song's good...
