His appearance in the mid 1970s to early 1980s resembled Leon Russell
Notable songs in his career include 1977's "I Go Crazy", a No. 7 pop hit which once held the record for the longest chart run on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as the No. 6 "'65 Love Affair", his highest-charting pop hit
Country music singer Charly McClain's song, "Best That Never Was", was specially written and dedicated to Paul Davis on her 1983 album "Paradise"
The same song became a Top 40 Country hit for Juice Newton in 1984
The first was in 1986 with Marie Osmond singing "You're Still New to Me" while the second, in 1988, was a collaboration with Tanya Tucker and Paul Overstreet singing "I Won't Take Less Than Your Love"
The single contained a third verse of music which was not included on the album version, and despite its top 40 and AC success, this single version has never been reissued on any CD including the various Paul Davis anthologies that have been released on CD, until Wounded Bird reissued the Best of Paul Davis compilation in 2011
