The One That You Love is the sixth album by Australian soft rock band Air Supply, released in 1981. The album became their most famous and successful in their career. It reached No. 10 in the US Billboard 200[2] album chart and contained three top 5 hits: "The One That You Love" (#1), "Here I Am" (#5) and "Sweet Dreams" (#5).[3]

Overview[edit]

The album was released after their major success with their previous album, Lost in Love, and multiplied the band's popularity through the first period of the 1980s. Production was carried out by Clive Davis. The single, "The One That You Love", became the band's first and only No. 1 hit. "Here I Am" reached No. 5 in the US charts, being a sheer drama closely related to the style of Barry Manilow, one of the band's influences.[4] The third single of the album was "Sweet Dreams". Beside the singles, "I'll Never Get Enough Of You", got to be the main theme of a Japanese TV novel, and a hit in Asia.[5] This was their first entry into any Asian chart.
