The first new #1 hit for 1986. The list of rather boring #1’s continue- this isn’t awful by any means but if it would come across the radio it’s not something I’d really care to hear. Back ground music. I didn’t know that it was originally recorded in 1982 by Rod Stewart for the soundtrack of Night Shift. Dionne’s friends on this song- Gladys Knight, Elton Hercules John and Stevie Wonder.
