"The title was a phrase that had been running through my mind, in terms of asking for that kind of awe, something so striking that you can't breathe." - Tom Whitlock (songwriter)
"Giorgio Moroder told us: 'I've got this great ballad, it's going to be the sound of the summer, it's going to be huge, you have to do it.' The song didn't go straight to #1. In fact, it couldn't get any radio play at all but for some reason, someone at Columbia just wouldn't give up on it. They pushed it for a month and then it exploded." - Terri Nunn
