Songfacts®:

  • The Carpenters were the first to record this song, releasing it on their 1977 album Passage. Dusty Springfield was the next to record it, putting it out in 1979 on her album Living Without Your Love. Murray recorded it later that year, and her version was the hit, going to the top of the Adult Contemporary chart.
  • Written by Steve Dorff, Larry Herbstritt, Harry Lloyd and Gloria Sklerov, this song finds Murray singing about a man with some serious charm - every time they touch, she falls in love with him again. Dorff, who entered the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2018, has a talent for writing heartfelt emotional songs. His credits include "Through The Years" by Kenny Rogers and "Fire In The Morning" by Melissa Manchester.
  • Murray recorded a duet version with Dusty Springfield's vocals for the 2008 album Duets: Friends and Legends. >>

  • Steve Dorff had a lot of faith in this song, which is why he kept pushing artists to record it. "I always thought that was going to be a monster, from the minute we did the demo," he told Songfacts.
