The Salt In My Tears

Album: One Night With A Stranger (1983)
Charted: 36
  • This song is a goodbye to an ex-lover with a message that he is moving on.
  • This was Briley's only charting single as a solo artist. He released 3 albums on the Mercury label in the early 1980s and was in the groups Mandrake Paddle Steamer, Liverpool Echo, Greenslade, and Ian Hunter's band. He also worked as a session guitarist and singer for artists like Andy Williams and Meatloaf. He wrote songs for Kenny Loggins, Pat Benatar and Celine Dion.
  • Briley was recovering from food poisoning when the video was filmed, which explains his distressed state. >>
