Top 10 Alert!
Gold Record Alert!
Song#:  0024
Date:  01/26/1980
Debut:  89
Peak:  5
Weeks:  18
Genre:  R&B, Soul



Pop Bits:  This was their lone Top 10 song and was a #1 R&B hit. Although they continued have some minor success on the R&B chart, this was their pop peak.

ReduxReview:  Don't remember it. I can usually remember Top 10 songs from the 80s, but this one slipped by me somehow. Didn't recognize it. Maybe because it is kind of bland. They sound like a very good vocal group but I'm not connecting to this song.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  The group was originally called The Moments, but due to a label change and a lawsuit the group had to change their name. As The Moments, the had a #3 pop hit in 1970 with "Love On a Two-Way Street" along with several R&B hits.

  1. I remember the song, but the posted Sportify song seems to be an edit/version. If memory serves, the actual version is a tad better. - M
