  • Paul Anthony came up with the idea for this. One day when he was working out, his girlfriend screamed that "she loved him from head to toe." Anthony was part of the New York production and songwriting team Full Force, and he brought the song to the rest of the group who added their input.
  • Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam were a Harlem R&B trio made up of Lisa Lisa (born Lisa Velez in 1967), Mark Hughes and Alex "Spanador" Moseley. The follow up to this, "Lost In Emotion" was also a #1 hit.
  • All Lisa Lisa hits were written and produced by Full Force, who went on to work with artists as diverse as James Brown and Samantha Fox. Earlier in 1985 Full Force had a #9 hit for themselves in the UK with "Alice, I Want You Just For Me," a homage to the Alice Cramden character of the classic sitcom The Honeymooners. >>
