The song “Lady In Red” was recorded in 1986 by the band Billy Ocean. It was released as a single in 1987, and it hit #1 in the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia. The song also peaked at #2 in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song was originally written by Frank Myers, who submitted it to Atlantic Records. Atlantic passed on the song, but Frank kept pushing them to listen to it until they finally gave in and agreed that they should record it.
When Frank Myers first submitted the song “Lady In Red”, he did so with only one verse and a chorus. With his permission, Billy Ocean later added another verse to the song when he decided to record it himself
The music video for “Lady In Red” shows Billy Ocean singing while playing guitar on top of a building overlooking Los Angeles at night.
