Christopher Cross is the self-titled debut album by Christopher Cross, released in December 1979. In 1981, it won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, famously beating Pink Floyd's The Wall. It has been noted for being one of the most influential soft rock albums of the early 1980s.

Christopher Cross is an American singer-songwriter originally from Austin, Texas, known as an influential artist in American soft rock music. He has written or co-written all his own songs, with the exception of "Nature's Way" that appears on his 'Window' album.

Album, 1979, Warner Music Group. 1. Say You'll Be Mine.

Written by Christopher Cross from his 1980 self-titled 1980 album. A gentle yet emotionally powerful song, Sailing was released as a single June 15, 1980 to massive radio play, reaching on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in the United States and Canada. The Grammy Awards also recognized the song for both Song Of The Year and Arrangement Of The Year. During a live performance and interview on The Howard Stern Radio Show in 1995, Cross said the song was inspired by actual events in his life as a young boy in Texas, describing a difficult period in his youth when an older neighbor invited him sailing. Their trips out on the water became a regular escape from the young boy’s troubles and the generosity of his friend with the beauty of the sailing experience made a strong and lasting impression on Chris and manifested years later in this song.
