"Don't Give Up on Us Baby" by David Soul (1976)

In 1976, right in the middle of his hit TV show Starsky & Hutch, David Soul, aka "Hutch," traded his tough guy image for that of a sweet-voiced ballad singer and it paid off. "Don't Give Up on Us Baby" shot all the way to number one on U.S. charts. Afterward, he released several more albums that were much more popular in the U.K. than they were in the States. Today, Soul lives in England and works in theater.
