I'm 99% sure I have never heard this song before, yet it's listed as the #1 track of 1981. Should I feel like a jerk for that?
This has that lighter 80's sound with just enough echo on the mic that it's sort of airy, even in the growling and scratch of Kim's voice. It's a unique track and I can dig it. Donna Weiss and Jackie DeShannon co-wrote this, and it won the 1982 Grammys for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. And in possibly the most interesting factoid, Jackie DeShannon originally recorded an "R&B Lite" version of the song. The more you know!
