In 1982, Canadian band Sheriff released their first and only album. It was a self-titled album that produced one major hit. In 1983, they released the song When I’m With You. It peaked at #61 on the Hot 100 charts, but in 1988, the song was re-released as a single, and it hit number one on the Hot 100 charts. How?
Six years after “When I’m with You” had been a chart hit in Canada, Las Vegas DJ Jay Taylor began playing the song. KRXY DJ Gabe Baptiste also started playing “When I’m With You,” and listener response was positive. As a result, Capitol Records re-released the song. It subsequently became No. 1 in the United States in February 1989.via Wikipedia
