Music video by Rick Astley performing Cry For Help.


"Cry for Help" is the title of the first single taken from British dance-pop singer Rick Astley's third studio album, Free. It was written by Rick Astley and Rob Fisher. The Andraé Crouch Choir provided backing vocals.

Released as a single in January 1991, "Cry for Help" reached the top 10 on both the UK Singles Chart in the United Kingdom as well as the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, where the song peaked at number seven on both sides of the Atlantic. It reached number three in Canada, and it was a number one hit on the U.S. Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart. The song's number seven UK chart placing meant that Astley became the first male solo artist to have his first eight singles reach the British top 10.

The song is a soul ballad, unlike Astley's other more dance-oriented hit singles (such as "Never Gonna Give You Up"). It was co-written by British singer Rob Fisher, formerly one half of the 1980s pop outfits Naked Eyes and Climie Fisher. To date, the song was Astley's last appearance in the top 10 in either the U.S. or U.K.

The song has been sung by Rick Astley in duet with Soren Sko and covered by Thomas Anders (ex-Modern Talking).
