For example, to list a song played by the Osmonds which is soft wouldn't qualify, because virtually all their music is that way. So what you need is a departture from their usual fare, and a good degree of soft. I don't know if Sammy Hagar ever had a soft song, but virtually every musician has one somewhere.
