First Hit #1: July 23, 1977
This is a strange mess of a song. It seems like it should be sad, about people who should have moved on from their old relationship contemplating rekindling that, in spite of the rest of their lives making that a terrible idea. Yet, the chorus is triumphant, which seems like an odd choice since it’s not triumphant in context. It’s about the people in the song having made it and having been successful, which is good, but then they still can’t get over each other anyway, which is bad. I can’t help but think the desire for a hit kind of overrode what the song was actually about, which doesn’t result in something bad so much as something very confused. The person writing the lyrics and the person composing the song seem to have contradictory goals.
