Violet and Blue was actually a pretty big hit on the rock stations in 1984.
Maybe there was some other reason but when I watched Against All Odds, I noticed right away that the Violet and Blue version was different than the soundtrack version. Then I remember reading they had to use another version of the song for some reason and its not Stevie singing. Its been moons since I have seen this movie.
I am getting old and my memory is not what it used to be Does anyone know the reason?
interesting. i didn't know this. actually, i don't think i've ever seen the movie and i was of age back then. do you know where this song comes on in the movie? i just looked on youtube hoping there was a clip with just that part but i didn't find anything.
