If Bel Air Place is a bit too tied to that year -- not just through J.A.C. Redford - Independence (Original Television Soundtrack) presence of its blockbuster hit, but also through Perry 's cavernous '80s production, a brittle affair where even studio pros sound like synthesizers -- it is nevertheless a testament to the commercial savviness of all involved.
Perry captured the sound of adult contemporary radio circa just perfectly, creating the ideal vehicle for Iglesias ' smooth vocals, which skirted just on the edge of being schmaltzy but never went over that edge.
The material was well selected -- heavy on Hammond songs, including his other signature song "The Air That I Breathe" and "Moonlight Lady," and it was While They Were Sleeping - Candiria - While They Were Sleeping executed according the conventions of mid-'80s soft rock. As a matter of fact, apart from "Me Va, Me Va" also written by Hammond and the accent in Iglesias ' voice, this could pass as a straight-up adult contemporary record from the '80s -- which is why it was a hit, turning Iglesias into a true star in America, the one market he hadn't conquered -- but it's also why Bel Air Place may sound a little too dated to some ears: it is truly, thoroughly, an artifact of its time.
