At the time of the release of Laura Branigan’s second album, Branigan 2, European style synth pop was on the rise, helping her earlier single, “Solitaire,” make it to the charts. While she had had an earlier hit in the form of “Gloria,” 1983’s Branigan 2 would cement her fame and ensure she was not merely a one hit wonder. That album contained “How Am I Supposed To Live Without You,” which contained lyrics written by the then unknown singer Michael Bolton. The track would spend three weeks in the top position on the Adult Contemporary charts in the United States.
