  • Crystal Gayle again achieved crossover success with this song, in which she wants a man to love her with all his heart and soul, not just "half the way. This turned out to be her biggest hit, with the exception of "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue," reaching #2 on the Country charts and #15 on the Billboard Top 100. >>
