Glenn Medeiros – Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love For You (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on February 14th, 2018

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

Happy Valentine’s Day!

“Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love for You” is a song written by composers Michael Masser and Gerry Goffin. It was originally recorded in 1984 by American singer and guitarist George Benson. Two years later, the song was re-recorded by Hawaiian singer Glenn Medeiros, whose 1987 cover eventually topped the charts in several countries. The single reached number 12 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and topped the charts in Canada and the United Kingdom. It also topped the charts in a further four countries in Europe. Medeiros also recorded the song in Spanish under the title “Nada cambiará mi Amor por ti”.

Medeiros originally released the song on a small independent label at the age of 16, after winning a local radio talent contest in Hawaii. A visiting radio executive from KZZP in Phoenix, Arizona heard the song and took the record back to Phoenix, where it became a national hit through word of mouth.

The song was featured in a late 1987 episode of the US daytime soap opera Days Of Our Lives as well as 1988 episodes of As The World Turns, The Bold And The Beautiful, and General Hospital.

In 2009, the song was used in France in a television advert for Spontex sponges. The song was additionally used in a commercial for Thinkbox in the UK in 2015. During the same year, the song was used in an episode of British soap opera Coronation Street, where characters Beth Tinker and Kirk Sutherland got married.

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“Too Much In Love” is a 1985 single by Canadian-born British singer Thereza Bazar, best known as one half of the pop duo, Dollar.

Bazar released one solo album in 1985 called The Big Kiss, which she co-wrote. It was produced by Arif Mardin.

The album and its singles failed to chart.

Thank You!

Posted by DjPaulT on February 9th, 2018

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all of the thoughtful Birthday wishes that I received yesterday. There were so many that I could not respond to all of them on the blog, Facebook, and Twitter. You guys are the best! Next week is Valentine’s Day so I am planning to do a themed week featuring singles with the word LOVE in the title. I have done this a few times before and it’s always been fun. So look forward to that. I hope everybody has a great weekend.

Love & Light
