Elliot Lurie Career

After leaving the band in the mid-1970s, Lurie released a self-titled album and a single, “Disco (Where You Gonna Go)”, both on Epic Records. Neither reached the Billboard Top 100. He later signed with another record and conjointly worked writing songs for Chappell Music and Screen Gems Music.

In addition, Elliot Lurie wrote and sang lead on their 1972 #1 hit single “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” and their 1973 top-forty single “Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne.” In the eighties, Lurie wrote and made music for personal business use. Elliot Lurie moved to Los Angeles in 1984, and in 1985, became head of the music department at 20th Century Fox.

Since then Elliot Lurie worked as music supervisor on numerous mainstream films, including Alien 3 (1992), A Night at the Roxbury (1998), Riding in Cars with Boys (2001), I Spy (2002), and Spanglish (2004).

Elliot Lurie Brandy

Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl) is a 1972 song written and composed by Elliot Lurie and recorded by his band, on its album Looking Glass. In high school, Elliot Lurie had a girlfriend named Randy. So he started inserting the name Randy into the lyrics of the song he was creating.

The single reached number two on the former chart for four weeks, stuck behind Gilbert O’Sullivan’s “Alone Again (Naturally)”, before reaching number one, only for “Brandy” to be dethroned by “Alone Again (Naturally)” the week after. Billboard ranked it as the 12th song of 1972. Horns and strings were organized by Larry Fallon.

The lyrics tell of hard liquor, a bartender in a very busy harbor city that serves “a hundred ships daily.” Though lonely sailors flirt with her, she pines for one who’s long since left her because he claimed his life, his love, and his lady, was “the sea.” 

The urban myth that Brandy was based on Mary Ellis (1750–1828), a spinster in New Brunswick, New Jersey, has been refuted by Elliot Lurie himself. Lurie also refutes the suggestion that the song was written by songwriter Stephen Homner, and eventually sold to Elliot Lurie after he expressed interest in the song.

Brandy was used in the films Lords of Dogtown, Say Anything…, Charlie’s Angels, A Very Brady SequelLymelife, and the 2018 Spike Lee Film BlacKkKlansman. It was also used in an episode of the 2009 television show Harper’s Island, and it can be heard in the background in a scene set in the longshoremen’s bar in Season 2 of The Wire.

A Beautiful Music instrumental version is often detected within the background once Chris Knight is moving his potential future leader within the film Real Genius. On the album, Silver City by Sarah Borges, the song “Same Old 45” retells the story of Brandy from her point of view. Fantasy author Alex Bledsoe used Brandy’s name and also the song’s story for his novel Wake of the Bloody Angel. The song is included on the soundtrack of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Following the song’s release in 1972, “Brandy” increased in popularity as a girl’s name in the United States. According to data from the Social Security Administration, drawn from “Social Security card applications for births that occurred in the United States,” Brandy was the 353rd most popular name in 1971, 140th in 1972, and, in 1973 (the first full year after the song’s popularity), 82nd.
