When I’m With You

In 1983 Canadian band Sheriff hit Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart with the single “When I’m With You.”  The song peaked at number 61 and spent 7 weeks on the chart.  It was the band’s only song that ever hit the Hot 100, and soon thereafter Sheriff broke up.  However, that wasn’t the end for this song and this band.

More than five years later, stations around the United States began to play the song again, and Sheriff’s record company, Capitol, rereleased the single.  Exactly 25 years ago, that rereleased single hit number 1 for a one-week stay.

Two members of the band, Freddy Curci and Steve DeMarchi, built off Sheriff’s newly found success by joining up with several former members of Heart to form the band Alias, which would hit number 2 in the fall of 1990 with “More Than Words Can Say” and number 13 in the spring of 1991 with “Waiting For Love.”
