DEF: Philip Bailey “Walking on The Chinese Wall”
Outside of his work with Earth, Wind & Fire, Denver-born musician Philip Bailey is best known for his duet with Phil Collins, “Easy Lover,” which hit number 2 in 1985. Bailey did, though, make another appearance on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart. On this date in 1985, that song — “Walking on The Chinese Wall” — rose to a peak position of number 46. Today, “Walking on The Chinese Wall” by Philip Bailey is the Daily Eighties Flashback.
