Potential New Boyfriend (Dolly Parton)
This song was certainly not the most high profile Parton single of 1983 – that honor would go to Islands In The Stream, her duet with Kenny Rogers. This song is notable, however, for sending Parton to #13 on the Dance charts. She wasn’t a complete stranger there, having hit with songs like Baby I’m Burnin’ (#15) but the #13 placing was better than the song’s Country chart performance where it stalled at #20.
Pretty as a picture
Comin’ on so strong
He’s twisting my ignition key
Turn my motor on
Fun fact: The songwriters are Steve Kipner and John Lewis Parker. Kipner was a co-writer of the biggest selling song of the 1980s – Physical by Olivia Newton-John.
