This song was written Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb of The Bee Gees. The Brothers Gibb also added their vocals, which are clearly heard during the chorus. (thanks, Jeff - Austin, TX)
This song is about a one-sided relationship, one where Dr. Phil would tell Dionne that "He's just not that into you." She knows that he's no good for her, but has to fight through the feelings she has in order to give him up.
Warwick wasn't thrilled about this song, but she knew that recording something written by The Bee Gees was in the best interests of her career, and sure enough, it became her biggest hit since "I'll Never Love This Way Again
She recalled to The Mail on Sunday
magazine: "It came about when my boss Clive Davis met Barry Gibb from the Bee Gees at a wedding and he told him he had always been a fan of mine and had a song for me. Clive put us in touch."
"I was not initially keen on the track but it ended up going platinum. I had no criteria on how to pick a hit record. I didn't want to record."
