RE: Looking for an 80's REMAKE...
Hello all,

I love this forum because I have found quite a few of difficult to name/find, 80's songs here. So, I'm back hoping you guys cna help as always. I was hoping someone could help me out with this favorite. I believe it is an older song (maybe from the 60's), that was REMADE in an R&B style, in the mid to late 80's. I think the name of the song is "Closer to You". Here are the lyrics:

Why do birds suddenly appear here
everytime you are near
just like me they want to be - closer to you...

something, something....

on the day that you were born the angels got together and decided - to make a dream come true. They sprinkled gold dust in your hair, but baby your eyes ain't blue....

That's all I can think of at the moment. I'm looking for the correct name of the song and the the artist. Please help! Thanks.
