Jennifer Warnes knows how baffling her career has been. Despite breakthrough commercial success in the 1980s--performing the most Oscar-winning songs (three)--the pop singer-songwriter now has neither a record label nor a manager. In fact, her last album, "The Hunter," was released nine years ago.

It was a little over a year ago that pop singer Jennifer Warnes called up old friend Leonard Cohen with the news that she was all set to finally record a new album--to consist entirely of his songs. Chuckling, Warnes recalls a dubious Cohen's reaction at the time: "You'll have about as much luck as I've had." Cohen had reason to doubt that such a project would ever see the light of day.

"(I've Had) the Time of My Life," the Bill Medley-Jennifer Warnes duet from the movie "Dirty Dancing," was named Song of the Year for 1988 at the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers on Monday. The award was scheduled to be made at a dinner at the Beverly Wilshire to co-writers John De Nicola, Donald Markowitz and Franke Previte. The song earned the title by being the most-performed item in the ASCAP catalogue for the year. Debbie Gibson and Bruce Springsteen tied for the songwriter of the year award, each with four songs among the year's most-heard.

Go back to Jennifer Warnes' recently re-released "Famous Blue Raincoat," not this ill-compiled collection whose 18 acts--most of them English, all of them male--sound, in their studied dispassion, remarkably alike.
