Song #82: "Love's Been A Little Bit Hard On Me"--Juice Newton (1982)

We heard from Juice Newton earlier at Song #187 and today she returns with my favorite song from her catalog.

Coming off a very successful 1981, she released a new album, "Quiet Lies", in 1982. By this time the "Urban Cowboy" effect on Top 40 radio had waned, but Newton bucked the trend with a couple of big hits from the album, the first being today's song.

If you've never seen the video, it's pretty good, remembering it was back when MTV was less than a year old and "The Nashville Network" was still a year away from being born. Do you remember The Nashville Network?  :)
