Hazard (Cover Version of Richard Marx)

Hazard ...

I used to hazard-ised the bathroom or toilet with this song. Remembered vividly that the local singer Jennifer Yen gave me the hint the best place to practice my singing is the bathroom or toilet. So with a tape recorder side by side I sing alone with the original singer and that's how I started my singing as one of my most favorite past time.

"Hazard" is a 1992 hit song written and performed by American singer/songwriter/producer Richard Marx. It peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached #6 in the Cash Box charts.
In addition, the song was Richard's third #1 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.[1] Internationally, it topped charts throughout the world, hitting #1 in Australia and #3 in the United Kingdom.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Hazard" tells the story of an implied relationship of some kind between a narrator (usually considered the protagonist) and a woman named Mary. Mary disappears in suspicious circumstances, and the protagonist, shunned by many in the small town since his childhood ("That boy's not right."), is immediately considered the main suspect. The protagonist, however, maintains his innocence throughout the song, and the question of such is left open to the listener's interpretation.

The music video for "Hazard" reveals additional video cues and other details that led viewers to speculate about the question of the protagonist's innocence while still following the song's lyrics and ultimately leaving the outcome open to interpretation. The narrator also refers to the state of Nebraska, United States, and specifically a town called Hazard, NE. "Miss Mary" is played by actress Renee Parent[2]

The music video opens with several older men teasing the protagonist's character as a child with his mother in the background; the description of his character as "not right" may imply slight mental illness or simply being different. The video then shows Mary, who is depicted as having features very similar to the protagonist's mother. Various scenes in this sequence can cause the viewer to become unclear about the nature of their relationship. As the story continues, the town's sheriff is shown taking photographs of the couple and following one or both of them in his vehicle.

It is implied that the protagonist goes to see Mary but catches her making love to an unidentified person. Again, the video flashes back to his childhood, where he sees his mother committing adultery. In present time, the sheriff arrives and sees the protagonist, who then flees, leaving his scarf behind on the branch of a bush. He returns home and weeps about Mary.

Mary is then shown alone near the river spoken of in the song. She turns to face the camera with a look of surprise on her face, and it is then made to look as if she lay in water. The next morning (as the song states), several people assist in arresting the male character in regard to her disappearance.

While in the interrogation room, he is shown a white cloth, which the sheriff identifies as the item used to strangle Mary. He then denies that he and Mary were romantically involved, and the sheriff asks if Marx was jealous. At this point, the video reveals a larger picture of the protagonist's childhood: that after his mother's affair, his father leaves her for another woman. He is then shown as a child running out of a burning house, although it is unclear whose it is or if he actually set the fire.

Locals are shown vandalizing the male character's home, breaking windows and setting fire to it. It is implied that he cannot be proven guilty when the sheriff drops him off at his ruined home. As the video ends, a woman walking by covers her young son's eyes, again implying he is an outcast or implicated in her disappearance.

Song Lyrics

My mother came to Hazard when I was just seven
Even then the folks in town said with prejudiced eyes
'That boy's not right'

Three years ago when I came to know Mary
First time that someone looked beyond the rumors and lies
And saw the man inside

We used to walk down by the river
She loved to watch the sun go down
We used to walk along the river
And dream our way out of this town

No one understood what I felt for Mary
No one cared until the night she went a-walking alone
And never came home

Man with a badge came knocking next morning
Here was I surrounded by a thousand fingers suddenly
Pointed right at me

I swear I left her by the river
I swear I left her safe and sound
I need to make it to the river
And leave this old Nebraska town

I think about my life gone by
How it's done me wrong
There's no escape for me this time
All of my rescues are gone, long gone

I swear I left her by the river
I swear I left her safe and sound
I need to make it to the river
And leave this old Nebraska town
