Isn't it Time

The Babys
 
 

Was it lucky or not that the two highest charting Babys hits, 'Isn't It Time' and 'Every Time I Think Of You' both peaked at 13. This song was the Babys break out single coming from 1977's 'Broken Heart'.

 

Every Time I Think Of You

The Babys
 
 

The other Babys song to chart at 13 was this one from their 'Head First' album. The song brings in vocalist Annie Bertucci to compliment Waite's singing.

 

Back on My Feet Again

The Babys
 
 

The last Babys song to crack the Top 40 was this one from 1979's 'Union Jacks' release. 'Back on My Feet Again' reached number 33.

 

When I See You Smile

Bad English
 
 

Bad English formed in 1988 pairing members of the Babys with members from Journey. The collaboration lasted for two albums and this chart topping song from 1989.

 

Missing You

John Waite
 
 

John's biggest chart success came in 1984 with this solo track which hit number 1. The song has been recorded by Tina Turner and a duet with Waite and Alison Krauss was a minor hit in 2007.
