"I've Never Been To Me" by Charlene.

OK, more 80's one-hit wonders: Ron Miller and Ken Hirsch wrote this ballad in '76 from the male perspective. Miller then rewrote it for a female Motown singer who released it in '77, peaking at #97. It was re-released in '82 with an expanded spoken bridge reaching #3 in the US and topping the charts in the UK. #75 on VH1's 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders. A woman is at a point in her life where she wishes she would have taken the time to lead a "normal" life instead of the life of excitement and luxury she chose. Throughout the song the singer is "talking" to an old school friend. It is rumored that it is about and "from the eyes of" actress Natalie Wood. Singer? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Playboy" by Gene and Debbe. Gotta love ol' Hef! About being engaged to a 24 year-old he told his doctor: "If she dies, she dies".
