"Happenin' All over Again" is a song written and produced by Stock Aitken & Waterman for Lonnie Gordon's first album If I Have to Stand Alone (1991). It was released as the album's second single in January 1990 and reached #4 on the main UK singles chart.[1] The song mixed Stock Aitken & Waterman's Europop sound with the blooming Italo house music which was becoming big in the UK charts at the time. This 1990 version was never released in the USA.

The song had been originally written for Donna Summer, but due to a falling-out with the producers, she never recorded it and instead was given to Gordon.[2]

A different version of the song was included on Gordon's 1993 album Bad Mood. This version was released as a U.S. single in 1993 and peaked at #98 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart,[3] and also hit #1 on the U.S. Dance chart.[4]

Gordon re-recorded the song for a second time in 1998 and released it as a single.
