Murphy’s Law Cheri (21 Records (Canada)/Venture (U.S.)/Polydor (France), 1982)
Murphy’s Law was a #1 Billboard dance hit (for three weeks) by Canadian/American female dance music duo Cheri. Murphy’s Law also hit #5 on the R&B chart, #13 in the UK and #39 on the Hot 100.
Murphy’s Law is best known for its squeaky sped-up vocals and laughs throughout the chorus and entire song really. Murphy’s Law was written by Cheri member Rosalind Hunt’s mother, Geraldine Hunt (and Daniel Joseph). It was produced by Geraldine and her brother Freddie James. Lise Cullerier (the Canadian) was the other member of Cheri and she and Hunt were friends encouraged to sing together by Geraldine.
