Climie Fisher were a UK pop duo formed by vocalist Simon Climie (born 1957) and former Naked Eyes keyboardist Rob Fisher (5 November 1956 – 25 August 1999). In 1987-8, they had two international hit singles: “Rise to the Occasion” and “Love Changes (Everything)”.
Climie Fisher wrote “Love Changes Everything” thinking that Rod Stewart could sing it, but Stewart turned it down and they released the song in 1987. Initially it received poor sales and airplay, reaching #67 in the UK and #30 in The Netherlands. After the success of “Rise to the Occasion”, the song was re-released with a slight remix by Bob Clearmountain in 1988, and reached #2 in the UK. It was kept off the top spot by the Pet Shop Boys song “Heart”.
“Love Changes (Everything)” also reached #2 in South Africa, #7 in Germany, #8 in Switzerland, #15 in Austria, #23 in Australia, #23 in the US Hot 100 and Top 20 on the U.S. Dance Music/Club Play Singles and Adult Contemporary charts.
The US 12″ single featured the House Mix by Phil Harding and the Dance Mix by Stephen Hague.
