Being with You by Smokey Robinson was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, June 13, 1981 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Robinson wrote this for Kim Carnes after she recorded his song "More Love," which was produced by George Tobin. What Smokey didn't know was that Carnes and Tobin were no longer working together, but instead of explaining that to Smokey, Tobin brought him in and convinced him to record the song himself. According to this song's producer, George Tobin, Motown president Berry Gordy didn't think this would do very well, but when it started to climb the charts he put a lot of promotion behind it. The song was unusual in that it was released on Motown Records, but through an arrangement with someone outside the company.
