I have always linked this song with "Shining Star" by Manhattans, thats why i'm perplexed this song was only recorded as late as 1987 by Atlantic Starr. I could have sworn black and blue this was released in the start or early 80s. Nervadamind.
This song has been called the "timeless radio ballad" and thats a pretty good description. Chicks love it and guys hate it (Moi like all genres so it doesnt worry me, i am quite happy singing this in the car even when bikers are passing me, window up of course)
As for Atlantic Starr they are still going today. Which proves, one damn fine song can last for many many many years and still give you dinner on the table every night.
