Lost '80s Pop Classic Week: "Don't Shut Me Out" Kevin Paige (1989)

Here's a two-hit wonder from 1989, Kevin Paige was poised to become "the next George Michael" (along with COUNTLESS other male pop acts that year, including Donny Osmond, - of all people - because he also had a similar George Michael-y sounding pop comeback hit himself that year.)

Who knew being "the next George Michael" would be a compliment that has it's boot on entirely another foot today?

After "Don't Shut Me Out" (and it's follow-up "Anything I Want", also Top 20) Kevin Paige completely vanished from the pop scene as quickly as he came. He became a house songwriter for Zomba Records before taking that always lucrative detour of faded pop stars - Contemporary Christian music.

Here's Kevin Paige's BIZARRE conservative Christian reworking of John Lennon's "Imagine"
