I know as a songwriter(not famous) I have written some things in hindsight that turn out to be 'not so great"(to me)..and I understand that when people criticize, that they don't realize how difficult it is to write...but I'm not big on this song.....
OMG! It's one of my all-time favorites -- of Burt's or anyone's. I put it -- musically speaking -- on the level of pop genius. I will never tire of listening to it. If it weren't a #1 song for Michael and Patti, then it certainly was close. A monster hit song, I would say.
Also, a great song, blue. The intro alone pulls you right in. Burt's genius for composing such original and wonderful music will always astound me. Especially when you listen to the total shit that songwriters(?) get away with now.

Your wish is my command.......it's on it's way.
