Default Dream list of producers for Christine’s solo material

Am I the only one who thought Patrick Leonard did an incredible job with Christine’s songs for the Chain boxset? Love Shines and Heart of Stone blew me away when I heard them, and they hold up to this day. Billy Burnette said Leonard was really expensive, and based on his previous work with Madonna, I believe it. What a hitmaker he was! Imagine a solo album with 12 songs instead of just 2! Or even a FM album with Billy as well.

Peter Asher- he produced many albums, including Linda Ronstadt and 10,000 Maniacs. His style would have been fascinating with Christine’s material, I think. Maybe less commercial, though.

Arif Mardin- he produced Bette Midler songs like From a Distance and Wind Beneath My Wings. Could he have provided songs from hitmakers like Diane Warren for Christine? Would he have been too much of a snooze for Christine’s songs?

Curious who else might have been a good match for Christine.

I'm not too familiar with producers, but I wish that there had been one or more collabs of some kind between Christine and Elton John. A pair of hit-making British pop pianists... how did their worlds never collide musically?

The best connection I know of, and one that proves their compatability, is Elton's cover of Don't Stop for the Rumours cover anthology album.

Patric Leonard.

I mean, can't argue with his work thus far.

He’s the one. Those two Christine songs he produced for THE CHAIN compilation are spot on. He knew exactly how to get the most out of her talents—and how to exploit the supporting accompaniments.
