By Mark Nobes, chief editor
The Yorkshire born singer-songwriter Robert Palmer enjoyed eight Top 40 singles in the
UK during the 80's, including two with the Power Station. Addicted to Love
is his most recognised song and was a #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and on the Top Rock Tracks chart in the U.S. It also topped the Australian Kent Music Report chart. In the UK, the single peaked at #5.
Taken from the album Riptide, the only other hit from the album was I Didn't Mean to Turn You On which made #2 in the U.S. and #9 in the UK. The guitar riff was played by Andy Taylor from Duran Duran.
