Songfacts®:

  • Songwriters Michael Masser and Gerry Goffin wrote this. It was first recorded by George Benson in 1984.
  • Medeiros sang this at the age of 16 on a Hawaiian local radio contest after hearing the song on Benson's album. He won the talent contest and subsequently recorded the song on a local Hawaiian label in 1986. A visiting radio executive from KZZP in Phoenix, Arizona heard the song and took the record back to Phoenix. The song was as popular in Phoenix as it had been in Hawaii and in the beginning of 1987, it was released in mainland USA.
  • In 1988, this was released in the UK where it gave veteran Brill Building songwriter Gerry Goffin his first-ever #1 hit in Britain.
  • In 1990 Medeiros' duet with Bobby Brown "She Ain't Worth It" duplicated the success of his debut hit this time peaking at #12 in the UK and topping the US chart. >>
