In 1988, Craig and Charlie Reid had their only hit in America. The twins from Scotland had a lot of luck with the song. It was written in 45 minutes, as the chords came just as if they had always been around. The song, about being in love with a woman for the rest of your life, was sung in a Scottish accent, which probably helped in its success. It was used in a movie, Benny & Joon, which helped it to become a hit in America. The funny thing is that the brothers did not know it was used in the movie. However, it was a number 11 hit in the UK and number 3 in the US. Enjoy
