I have always loved this oft-covered tune. I was surprised and pleased to find this original promotional video online since I don’t ever recall seeing it before. That’s the best thing about blogging — finding out something new!

The song charted #1 Pop, #4 Adult Contemporary and #29 R&B Singles here in the USA in 1986.
It appeared on the group’s very first super successful 1985 LP entitled “Picture Book” which was released in 1985 and charted a respectable #16 Pop and #26 R&B in 1986.
