Robert Hazard (born Robert Rimato;[1] August 21, 1948 August 5, 2008),[2] was an American musician known for composing and recording a demo of the song "Girls Just Want to Have Fun", which Cyndi Lauper turned into a best-selling hit.[3] He also composed the 1980s new wave and MTV hits, "Escalator of Life" and "Change Reaction", which he performed with his band, Robert Hazard and the Heroes, which was popular in the Philadelphia club scene during the 1980s.[4] These songs appeared on the five song EP Robert Hazard, released in 1982.[5] Hazard's first major-label album, Wing of Fire, was released by RCA Records in January 1984.
Hazard died at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston on August 5, 2008 after surgery for pancreatic cancer, with which he had recently been diagnosed. He was living with his wife and two sons near Old Forge, New York, at the time of his death. He also is survived by a daughter.
