Written by Wayland Holyfield and Bob House, I remember this catchy waltz-time tune being all over the radio (and elevators & malls laugh) back in the day. It was a country-pop crossover hit, part of the "Urban Cowboy " soundtrack, and a hit for Anne Murray who won a Grammy on it for her vocal performance. I played it here on my Martin D35 with some rhythm guitar overdubbing via iMovie.

Geez, that's worth a second listen, and I never even liked the song to begin with (too schmaltzy and "easy listening" for my taste). Good stuff, as usual, Chuck.

That song got burned in my memory... was in a country rock band, wedding receptions were great paying gigs... so couldn't avoid playing that; perhaps the only song the wedding couples knew, but was overwhelming what they requested for their couple dance.

Nice playing.
