There was many a Whitney Houston fan forced to buy this soundtrack in 1985 to obtain this track by their beloved songstress. But their diligence was worth it. Not only wasn’t it on her debut album that came out that same year, it hasn’t appeared on any subsequent Houston album or compilation.
Fun fact: The writers of the song are Bruce Roberts and Andy Goldmark who also wrote Jermaine Jackson’s hit Dynamite (not to mention Oh, People for Patti LaBelle and You Should Be Mine (The Woo Woo Song) for Jeffrey Osborne!)
