This was Maxine Nightingale's breakout song and it hit in a huge way. It's about a woman in a relationship that's begun to fail and she wants them to bring back what brought them together in the first place. Though the song was a huge hit, Nightingale was never able to repeat its success, though "Lead Me On
" did very well a few years later. After 1980, she shifted her career and now mostly sings jazz, though she occasionally performs her old hits to her fans.
