Patty Smyth, an Oscar and Grammy nominated singer and songwriter, burst onto the scene with the band Scandal in 1982 and its self-titled debut that turned out to be the best-selling EP in Columbia Records history. The album featured the hit single, “Goodbye to You,” a song Smyth co-wrote, and the hits “Love’s Got a Line on You” and “Win Some, Lose Some.” In 1984, the group’s first full-length album, The Warrior, climbed into the Top 20 on the sales chart, eventually earning RIAA-certified platinum status, with more than a million in sales. Smyth’s 1992 solo album featured her biggest hit ever, “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough,” a song she wrote that featured a performance by Don Henley. The song reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and stayed there for six consecutive weeks, going No. 1 on the adult contemporary chart. The album and the single each earned platinum status. The album also produced the hits “No Mistakes,” “I Should be Laughing” and “Shine.”
