On the Billboard adult contemporary chart, the song became Foreigner’s only #1 hit, spending one week atop the tally the week of May 14, 1988. The band had previously reached the Top 5 on the AC chart twice, with the songs “Waiting for a Girl Like You” (#5 in 1981) and “I Want to Know What Love Is” (#3 in 1985).
Although a huge standard by any country’s charting method, the band’s sales were certainly plummeting since the release of 4 in 1981. It was the last album to feature the 80’s core lineup of Gramm, Jones, Wills and Elliott.
