Stages is a live album by Canadian rock band Triumph, released in 1985 (see 1985 in music). The tracks were recorded from various performances over the prior three years 1981-1984 although two new studio tracks were added: "Mind Games" and "Empty Inside".
Stages is the sophomore album by American rapper Nick Cannon. It contains the singles "Can I Live?", "Dime Piece", "It's Your Birthday", and "My Wife". "Can I Live?" is about a mother, played by Tatyana Ali in the video, who refuses to have an abortion.
"Stages" was a hit single for the American rock band ZZ Top in 1985 from their album Afterburner. The song differed from the band's normal style and even from the rest of the songs on the album, sounding somewhat like a rock power ballad. The song reached #1 on the Mainstream Rock charts in 1985 and #21 on the Billboard Hot 100.
