I heard this song on the way home today, and I had forgotten how much I always loved it.

The video is really cool.

Watch it and tell me what you guys think really happened to Mary.

I've always loved that song and the video clip. I'm convinced that sheriff murdered Mary and framed Richard Marx.

That's what we thought too...because he was following them around and taking their picture together...

But, who was she making out with in the car?

And who was the little boy- was that him when he was young, and his mom was messing around with someone?

When he was a little boy did he set his house on fire?

In the liner notes on his greatest hits CD, Marx reveals that the answer to the mystery is, and I quote: "Forget about it."

Great song and video. I remember even some Marx-haters liking it.

Good song. It always reminded me of 'Hand to Mouth' by George Michael (from Faith):

That is a ok tune.

I like his 80´s albums better though.
S/T (1987) and Repeat Offender (1989)
are good albums.

The Lyrics to Hand to Mouth are really powerful:


Jimmy Got Nothing made himself a name
With a gun that he polished for a rainy day
A smile and a quote from a vigilante movie
Our boy Jimmy just blew them all away
He said it made him crazy
Twenty five years living hand to mouth
Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth

Sweet little baby on a big white doorstep
She needs her mother but her mother is dead
Just another hooker that the lucky can forget
Just another hooker
It happens everyday
She loved her little baby
But she couldn't bear to see her living hand to mouth
Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth

I believe in the gods of America
I believe in the land of the free
But no one told me
(No one told me)
That the gods believe in nothing
So with empty hands I pray
And from day to hopeless day
They still don't see me
(See me)

Everybody talks about the new generation
Jump on the wagon or they'll leave you behind
But no one gave a thought to the rest of the nation
"Like to help you buddy, but I haven't got the time"
Somebody shouted save me
But everybody started living hand to mouth
Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth

There's a big white lady
On a big white doorstep
She asked her daddy and her daddy said "yes"
Has to give a little for the dollars that we get
Has to give a little -
They say it's for the best
Somebody shouted
Maybe
But they kept on living from hand to mouth
Hand to mouth, hand to mouth, hand to mouth

So she ran to the arms of America
And she kissed the powers that be
And someone told me
(Someone told me)
That the gods believe in nothing
So with empty hands I pray
And I tell myself
One day
They just might see me...
(return to top)

I think the Hazard video is a good basis for a movie.

I think filming it in black and white gave it a creepier feel to it.

It was one of the sleeper songs from the Faith album (one of the few that wasn't a hit single). Whenever I hear Hazard I think of it (and vice-versa).

I remember when Hazard came out it seemed like Richard Marx was trying to expand on his audience by doing something a little more challenging than his previous stuff, unfortunately for him the times were changing (having hair that was very unfashionable didn't help him). I always thought Hazard should've been a longer song with more verses (though I've never heard the album version).

The jealous Sheriff murdered sweet Mary in that old Nebraska Town. Case Closed.
