Not a bad song. Not a bad song at all. Just didn’t seem to catch on, peaking only at #59 in early 1980.
Brown had a little bit of chart success in the ’70s singing a few songs on his own, including the fairly popular “Do You Wanna Get Funky with Me?” but found massive success as one of the songwriters of Madonna’s “Material Girl” (see #1985-33).
Every time I hear this song I expect it to segue right into Gary Wright’s 1975 classic “Dream Weaver.” Take a listen and you’ll understand.
Memorable lyric: “You gotta believe in something. You gotta have a dream. You gotta believe in someone and crazy as it seems you always believed in me.”
