Songfacts®:

  • Although The Escape Club are best remembered for their 1988 hit "Wild Wild West," they were not a one-hit wonder. They had another Top 10 hit, "I'll Be There," which peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1991.
    The song is written from the point of view of a recently deceased loved one. The band wrote it for a friend of theirs whose wife had just died. >>
