The Bee Gees wrote this song. After their wildly successful contributions to the 1978 movie Saturday Night Fever, they were asked to work on an album for Streisand, which became Guilty. It was Streisand's best-selling album.
This was the 4th successive year Streisand had a US #1 hit. Her streak started in 1977 with "Love Theme From 'A Star Is Born' (Evergreen)." In 1978 it was "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," a duet with Neil Diamond. The following year it was "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)," a duet with Donna Summer.
Two other songs from the album hit US Top 10, and both were duets with Barry Gibb: "Guilty" and "What Kind of Fool." "Guilty" won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal by Duo or Group.
In the UK this was Streisand's first #1. Having made her British chart debut in 1966 with "Second Hand Rose," the 14-year-279-day interval between her first chart appearance and her first number one was then the fourth-longest wait in UK chart history.
