Songfacts®:

  • This was written in 1982 by brothers (and group members) Jonathan, David, and Wayne Lewis. The brothers brought this to a 1982 album session, but it didn't get included because the producer didn't think it would fit in with their other songs. It ended up being their biggest hit.
  • After Atlantic Starr changed lead vocalists (From Sharon Bryant to Barbara Weathers), "Always" was taken off the shelf to be sung as a duet between Weathers and David Lewis. >>

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn May 8th 1976, Atlantic Starr performed their debut Top 100 record ,"Circles", on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
    They would have nine more records make Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; three made the Top 10 with one reaching #1 ("Always" for one week on June 7th, 1987).
  • Victor from Hartsdale, NyBelieve it or not, 2 of the Lewis brothers work at my High School (Jonathan and I forgot the other one's name sorry). I know them both pretty well.
  • Nicola from London, EnglandThis song is romantic, and relaxing
