This was written by Canadian producer and songwriter Matthew Gerrard and Robbie Nevil, who had an international hit with his own recording "C'est La Vie" in 1986. Gerrard explained to Songwriter Universe Magazine
how the duo got involved: "Steve Vincent (Head Of Music at the Disney Channel) called me about this project. The concept was to create a very contemporary musical, which would feature modern pop music. Steve asked me to write the big opening and closing numbers. I then brought in Robbie Nevil to co-write these songs."
Gerrard added: "Everything kind of clicked on this project. I had a feeling it was going to be special. 'Start Of Something New
' was the opening song and the closer was 'We're All In This Together.' The third song that Robbie and I wrote was 'I Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You.'"
