"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.

Released as a single in 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 #7 on both sides of the Atlantic.
