"Loco in Acapulco"

"Loco in Acapulco" was a 1988 hit song by the Four Tops. It was written and produced by Phil Collins (who also played drums) and Lamont Dozier (one third of the group's legendary Motown long-time songwriting team, Holland–Dozier–Holland), for the soundtrack to the film Buster, that also starred Phil Collins in the title role.

It was released on Arista Records and was an international hit, reaching number 7 in the United Kingdom charts, and number 9 in the Netherlands.[1]The song did not chart in the U.S., as it was issued as the B-Side to "Change Of Heart", when it was released as a single in the US during 1989. The song is about partying and having fun in the Mexican city of Acapulco. The song would subsequently appear on their 1988 studio album Indestructible.
