Martin Briley: The Salt In My Tears

Although he toured extensively as a guitarist with a host of well known acts, Martin Briley will be probably best remembered for his 1983 one-hit wonder. As a story of love gone south that has left the protagonist with a bad taste in his mouth, “The Salt in My Tears” was Briley’s lone American hit.

From Briley’s second album, “One Night with a Stranger,” the song only peaked at #36. Although its chart action was dismal, it is better remembered as an MTV hit rather than a radio hit. I always thought it was a great song and wondered why it didn’t do any better than it did.
