(William Griffin/Warren Moore)
This song was written by two of the members of The
Miracles and recorded by the group for their 1975 album City of Angels. This became the second Top 40
single by The Miracles after Smoky Robinson had left the group three years
earlier. When the single was
released Tamla Motown took the full length version from the album and split
it between the A and B sides.
Reaching Platinum status, it hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot
100 in March 1976 and No. 3 on the UK singles. The singer Thelma Houston and the group Wham! have both
since covered it and it was also used in 1995 for the soundtrack of the
Disney movie Heavyweights.
It has appeared on several Motown and disco compilations since its
The Miracles recordings
