"I'll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me" is a song that was written by Diane Warren and recorded by female contemporary R&B group Exposé. It is featured on Exposé's 1992 eponymous album. It was the second single taken from the group's third studio album and was released in early 1993. The lead vocals were provided by Jeanette Jurado. Although Exposé's album refers to the song as "I'll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me", many sources (as well as the cassette and CD singles that were released) cover the last three words of the title within parentheses.

Saxophonist Euge Groove provided the instrumental solo for this song. This marks the second time that he is featured on Exposé's hits, as he also provided a saxophone solo for their #1 pop hit, "Seasons Change".

This song has been covered by Irish pop group Bellefire as well as Filipino band MYMP and Soul Siren Nina.

Background[edit]

According to Jurado composer Diane Warren had submitted "I'll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me" for consideration for Exposé to record at the same time as another Warren composition "Your Baby Never Looked Good in Blue" which appeared on the second Exposé album What You Don't Know (1989): Arista Records president Clive Davis had indicated that only one of the two songs could be recorded for the second Exposé album and although Jurado favored "I'll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me" the album's producer Lewis Martineé opted for "Your Baby Never Looked Good in Blue". Jurado - "I felt like we lost 'I'll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me'...and then come the third [album] that [song] was one of the songs Clive still held [exclusively] and I am so grateful to Diane for [allowing] that."[1]

Reception[edit]

"I'll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me" was a top 10 hit on the American pop chart, peaking at #8;[2] it also spent a week atop the adult contemporary chart in July of that year.[3] It was Exposé's first top 10 pop hit since 1990's "Tell Me Why".

Music video[edit]

In the song's music video, Jurado walks pensively along the beach and thinks of her ex-boyfriend, while Ann Curless and Kelly Moneymaker stand under a section of the boardwalk a few yards away from her. In other scenes, the three ladies sit in front of a fire or they walk around the boardwalk. There are also flashback scenes with Jurado and boyfriend having fun together. The video was shot around and under the Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, California.
