Dean Friedman


In the summer of 1977, Dean Friedman marked his entry into US pop consciousness with the enormous success (his only American hit, it peaked at #26) of his infectious hit single Ariel, a quirkily irresistible and uncategorizable pop song about a free spirited, music loving, vegetarian Jewish girl in a peasant blouse who lived, as the lyric goes, "...way on the other side of the Hudson." A year later, Friedman struck a chord in the UK, this time with a magical duet (performed with singer Denise Marsa) entitled Lucky Stars. Read more on Last.fm
In the summer of 1977, Dean Friedman marked his entry into US pop consciousness with the enormous success (his only American hit, it peaked at #26) of his infectious hit single Ariel, a quirkily irresistible and uncategorizable pop song about a free spirited, music loving, vegetarian Jewish girl in a peasant blouse who lived, as the lyric goes, "...way on the other side of the Hudson." A year later, Friedman struck a chord in the UK, this time with a magical duet (performed with singer Denise Marsa) entitled Lucky Stars. Lucky Stars zoomed to #3 in the UK singles charts going instantly gold. The now classic single Lucky Stars paved the way for a slew of hits off of Friedman's humorously titled album "Well, Well" Said the Rocking Chair", including familiar tracks such as Lydia and Rocking Chair as well as singles from his first album, Woman of Mine and Ariel. Dean Friedman holds the honor of having one of his songs banned by the BBC. The song goes "I am in love with a McDonalds girl." Because the song had the name of a business in it, the BBC wouldn't play it. Dean wrote the music for the UK TV series "Boon" and is also known in his local area as a children's entertainer with such songs as "I'm Somebody Too", "Brush Your Teeth" and "Never, Never Play With Matches". In addition, he has released a collection of "Silly Hebrew School songs for silly Jewish kids covering Jewish holidays". Now in his 50s, Dean still writes, records and tours.
