"Regrets" is a song by Barbara Wyrick. Originally written for Marie Osmond, it was instead recorded by James Brown. Released as a single in 1980,[1] it reached #63 on the R&B chart.[2][better source needed] It also appeared on the album People. Writing in The Village Voice, Thulani Davis described it as "sentimental, nice enough but not at all compelling."[3]
