  • Lyrics
  • This is a song about a love that is so strong and true that nothing can change it. It's quite the contrast to Raydio's previous hit, "Jack and Jill," which is about a failing marriage. >>

    At the time the song was at #24 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; a little over six weeks later on August 12th, 1979 it would peak at #9 {for 1 week} and it stayed on the chart for 22 weeks...
    It reached #3 on Billboard's R&B Singles chart; also made the Top 10 in Australia {#6} and in Canada {#9}...
    As simply 'Raydio' they had one other Top 100 record, "Jack and Jill", it peaked at #8 in 1978...
    Then as 'Ray Parker Jr. and Raydio' they charted three more times; with their biggest hit being "A Woman Needs Love (Just Like We Do)", it reached #4 in 1981...
