You Are the Woman

Album: Firefall (1976)
Charted: 9
  • This was both Firefall's breakout hit and it's most popular single, reaching peaking at #9 on the US Billboard Charts. In it, a man sings that he's found the ideal woman, and he loves her not for external qualities, but how much she loves him in return. >>

  • Most of Firefall's songs were written separately by their singer/guitarists Rick Roberts and Larry Burnett. This one was written by Roberts.

  • Aiken Nutz from Tahlequah OkEver since this song charted in 1976 I've wondered if there is someone murmuring or moaning in the background. On a new FM Oldies station in my area, they play the song quite often and I still hear a sound like a woman saying "mmmm" "mmm" behind the vocalist. Am I going insane? Can anyone else hear this sound?
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn August 15th 1976, "You Are The Woman" by Firefall entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart on position #82; and on October 17th, 1976 it peaked at #9 {for 2 weeks} and spent 22 weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #6 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart...
    Between 1976 and 1981 the Boulder, Colorado quintet had ten Top 100 records; after "You Are The Woman" their next two biggest hits just missed making the Top 10, "Just Remember I Love You" and "Strange Way" both peaked at #11 on the Top 100.
  • Miles from Vancouver, CanadaI can't stand this song. Makes the Eagles sound like AC/DC. (Plus, I'm 27 and I've never had a significant other. Why?)
  • Earl from Coldwater, MiThis song came out the year I started dating the woman who eventualy became my wife. I had forgotten about it for many years, but it means more to me now after 35 years together with her. Nice song.
