  • Mister_mojo_risin from Atlanta UsaThis is totally a basement track. Think I was about 5 when this one came out - Remember this one coming out of my 'rents Sherwood S-7200 receiver thru Pioneer speakers.

    Classic pop song for sure!
  • Al from NswBrings back loads of childhood sweet memories and more, top classic!
  • Bruce B. from San Jose, CaI used to sing this wistfully as a lovesick teen in bed at night, “Come on over tonight, come on o-o-o-over...” with this idealized image of a girl in my head (who looked a lot like Farrah Faucet at the time - LOL)
  • Mike from Norwalk, CtReminds me of a snowstorm that just missed our area...........why do I think of that I'll never know.......LOL
  • Dodge from Casper, WyDavis turned to country soon after the hits dried up for him in pop-rock. This song is especially noteworthy as his squeaky-clean, Christian-based sound was tested with this strong romantic ballad.
  • Paul from Detroit, MiWhat a great talent, he was. I loved this song. He was very underrated.
