Bad English is best known for their #1 hit "When I See You Smile
," but they were far from one-hit wonders. "Price of Love" was the follow-up single, and it rose to #5 in the US.
The song was written by lead singer John Waite
and keyboard player Jonathan Cain, who were in a band called The Babys in the late '70s. Cain joined Journey, and Waite launched a solo career, scoring a #1 hit with Missing You
. When Journey went on hiatus, Cain and his bandmates Neal Schon and Deen Castronovo joined Waite and another former Babys member, Ricky Phillips, to form Bad English. They released two albums before calling it quits.
