Patty Smyth


After departing Scandal in 1984, vocalist Patty Smyth waited 3 years before starting her solo career using the Under no circumstances Enough album. Though it marketed respectably, it didn’t possess any major strike singles. Smyth came back to the very best of the graphs in 1992 with “Occasionally Love Simply Ain’t More than enough,” a duet with Don Henley; the solo hit number 2 and went yellow metal. Its parent record, Patty Smyth, also proceeded to go gold and highlighted two other minimal hits, “No Errors” and “I WILL End up being Laughing.”
