In 1989, a Where Are They Now? Arizona radio segment spurred Los Angeles DJ Scott Shannon to add the song to his playlist, ultimately rocketing the song back onto the national charts, on May 6, 1989. Mardones' recording peaked this time at #20 the first week in July, adding 17 weeks to its previous run of 20, to add up to a total of 37 (non consecutive) weeks, breaking the record set by Laura Branigan with her single "Gloria", which charted for 36 (consecutive) weeks from July 1982 to March 1983, for the longest-charting single of the 1980s by a solo artist.
The track "American Bandstand" was written about the music TV show of the same name and the presenter/host Dick Clark. The song was performed on the show.
