1977, it was released on their album titled Broken Heart. The song was NOT (emphasis added by blogger) written by any member of the group - but actually by a bass guitarist named Jack Conrad, along with Ray Kennedy and it starts a distinctive piano introduction by Michael Corby which then moves into an opening vocal performance by lead singer John Waite. And here is a nugget on Ray Kennedy - "Raymond (Ray) Louis Kennedy (born in Phila.) is a singer, songwriter, musician and record producer based in LA. His works span multiple genres including R&B, pop, rock, jazz, fusion, acid rock, country and many others. Acid rock. Really. He is particularly notable as being the co-writer of one of the Beach Boys' major hits of their mid-career, Sail On, Sailor, plus Waite's hit called Everytime I Think of You."
