She wrote the song with Randy Jackson, who I believe was her former manager and ex-husband (and not the former is a solid, if slightly uneven capstone to Janie’s major label career.Although none of its songs qualify as essential listening, it’s still an album that Janie’s fans will want to give a spin, if they haven’t already.‘Help Me Get Over You’, written by Lisa Angelle and Walt Aldridge is another ballad, delicately sad.
What was to prove to be the girls’ final secular album was released in 1992.
‘What’ll You Do About Me’ is a vivacious up-tempo song written by Denis Linde.
” “Walking On the Moon” is an upbeat tune about young love and was country enough to have had hit single potential.
It is my favorite song on the album and likely would have been a hit if Janie had stumbled across it a few years earlier.
‘She Makes It Look Easy’ is an admiring, empathetic portrait of a single mom’s life.

This is perhaps my least favorite Forester Sisters album personally, but there are some attractive ballad and the rest is undoubtedly fun, and well done for what it is. After scoring her final #1 hit, “Always Have, Always Will” in 1986, she suffered a sharp decline in her chart success, from which she never recovered.
As they often did, the girls included an old pop standard, in the shape of ‘I Only Have Eyes For You’.
Much more to my taste is ‘Another Shoulder At The Wheel’, a lovely ballad written by Gary Burr and John Jarrard which is the best track on the album.
Written by Dave Allen and Tim Bays, it is a rather contemporary jazzy pop tune with little to do with country music, but one with a lot of individuality as the newly single protagonist embarks on dating again.
