Musical Interlude: Love (Changes Everything) (1987-8)

Climie Fisher, the collective name for British popsters Simon Climie and Rob Fisher, just missed the top 20 on Billboard's Hot 100 in 1988 with "Love (Changes Everything)", which peaked at #23. The song was initially released a year earlier to tepid response in the Netherlands and their native UK, but after taking "Love" back to the shop, if you will, for a remix, Climie Fisher gained some significant airplay.

30 years later, an up and coming singer-songwriter, Parker Harrison, covered "Love" on his debut EP, "Clear Conscience, Part 1", but doesn't have a video. So let's take a trip back in time with Climie Fisher's original version:

Climie Fisher intended this originally for Rod Stewart, but were turned down. For Fisher, this was a second chance at pop stardom, having previously been with Naked Eyes, which had a couple of hits earlier in the decade.
