Michael McDonald recorded it with his sister Maureen McDonald providing background vocals. It was featured on If That's What It Takes, his first solo album away from The Doobie Brothers. Released as a single, it peaked at No. 4 on the U.S. Billboard Pop Singles charts, #7 R&B and #8 on the Adult Contemporary chart. Greg Phillinganes, Steve Lukather and Jeff Porcaro of the band Toto played the clavinet, guitar and drums respectively. Noted bassist Louis Johnson from The Brothers Johnson laid down the song's pronounced bassline.
