“Love Changes (Everything)” by Climie Fisher

Climie Fisher was a duo of singer Simon Climie and former Naked Eyes keyboardist Rob Fisher. The two met at the world-famous Abbey Road Studio, where they were both performing as session musicians. In 1987, they released their debut album Everything, along with the single “Love Changes (Everything)” off of that album. “Love Changes (Everything)” became a world-wide hit, reaching the top-10 in several countries, and peaking at #23 in the U.S. on July 30, 1988. They followed up with the singles “Rise to the Occasion” and “Love Like A River“, which were hits in some countries, but did not chart in the U.S.

In 1989, Climie Fisher released their second album, Coming In for the Kill, which was not nearly as successful as their first album. They split up shortly after its release.

Rob Fisher later co-wrote Rick Astley’s song, “Cry for Help” single and wrote some songs for Astley’s albums Free (1991) and Body & Soul (1993). Fisher died on August 25, 1999 during surgery for bowel cancer.

  1. Oh yeah, NOW I remember that song!
    There’s a slight chance I might have had this song on tape. As good as it is, I should have. Why I forgot about this song is beyond me.
