This was written and originally recorded by Hall & Oates in 1980; Young's version became a hit 5 years later. In the October 16, 2009 issue of Entertainment Weekly, Daryl Hall listed this as one of his favorite Hall & Oates songs, and explained: "Paul Young had a pop hit with it a few years after we released it. It's just one of those songs. I feel very proud of its craftsmanship."
This was the biggest hit for Young. He contributed to Band Aid in 1984, and had hits with covers of R&B classics "Oh Girl" and "What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted."
The Creed lead singer reveals the "ego and self-fulfillment" he now sees in one of the band's biggest hits.
