Richard Marx Discusses No. 1s

Richard Marx has stories to tell in more ways than one. The veteran hitmaker from the '80s recently sat down to share memories about his No. 1 hits "Hold On to the Night," "Right Here Waiting" and "Satisfied" as part of a new video series from Billboard. He took part in the chat to celebrate the mag reaching 1,000 No. 1 songs on its Hot 100 chart.
"I just write songs that I'm proud of, that I like, that I want people to hear," explained Marx, "I've never had the experience of either phoning it in or thinking, 'Ooh I've got a smash here.'"
Marx, who has also written hit songs for Keith Urban, *NSYNC and Luther Vandross among others, will further celebrate his legendary career with his upcoming solo release, Stories to Tell, a collection of his greatest hits, acoustic versions, and live tracks that will also include a DVD of Marx's recent performance at the famed Shepherd's Bush Empire in London. The deluxe album, currently available exclusively at Walmart and Richard Marx's online store, will get a wide release on Feb. 7.
