One-Hit Wonders of the ’80s: 1981 – Rachel Sweet

“Everlasting Love” by Rex Smith and Rachel Sweet

“Everlasting Love” was originally recorded by Robert Knight in 1967, and a more recent version was done by Gloria Estefan in 1995.

The Rachel Sweet version peaked at #32 on August 22, 1981. Sweet was paired with Rex Smith who had reached #10 in 1979 with “You Take My Breath Away”. Their duet on “Everlasting Love” was featured on both Sweet’s And Then He Kissed Me album and the album Everlasting Love by Smith. This would provide Sweet with her only Top 40 showing and Smith with a second and final one.
