Ok so...I got really confused the other day when I was watching a video for LMB on youtube and some of the comments said PRINCE was actually the writer of this song that somehow ended up being recorded by BJ; also, another comment said it was written by Desmond Child alone (which I somehow have a hard time beliving). Therefore, does anyone have any idea who the hell actually wrote the best-sexiest god-damn song I've ever listened to??(also given the fact that wherever I looked the song up, the "writer" section said JBJ, RS and DC)

You can check the licencing details of all songs with the performing rights organisations who keep a database of who is entitled to royalties so who actually writes the songs.

I tried to link to the actual page but I think it's only going to let me link to the search page. If you do a search you will see it was written by Jon, Richie and Desmond.

Yes, well, I do hope it's just a stupid rumour because I absolutely love the song and you're right, everywhere I looked it said Jon, Richie and Desmond...didn't find one page that said otherwise..:-??...anyway, it's still a great song, no matter who actually wrote it.

It was Jon, Richie & Desmond. It says it on the liner notes, it says it on the licensing database.

Any chance you can share the link or name of the youtube you were watching? I'm interesting to hear/know who would make that comment when it's not true.

hey- that was my video- thanks for clearing it up- i had originally assumed that it was jon who had wrote it but when the other guy mentioned prince i had went looking and i came across this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Desmond_...

but i obviously didn't read it properly as i didn't notice it said it was written or co-written- i thought this meant songs he'd written soley for different bands.
i also obviously didnt look very hard to find out that it was jon and richie writing it too because as you said allie- now when i look it up i can see everywhere that its jb, rs and dc- i just misinterpreted the first link i came across in trying to discredit the other guy- cz seriously, prince creeps me out, it would spoil it if he had wrote it, how am i meant to daydream about jon when i'm listening to the song if princes face kept popping up lol
i used to be on this forum all the time myself, then i'd have been able to use you all as my source instead of relying on wikipedia :D anyway thanks again lol

Oh my! LMAO!! I had the same feeling about Prince and how it would have been just impossible to..really get into the song with that guy's face in my mind going..purple...:)) And really now, I don't see Jon singing songs not written/co-written by him (and by singing I actually mean recording because they usually do lots of covers on their live shows)or STEAL them...and sing them with so...much..HEART...lol;I mean, I think everyone here agrees that the way he sang it is just not human...it's..*GOD!!!*(I get a jovigasm just thinking about it lol). As for the "info source", I do the exactly same thing :)): I quit searching the internet to the bone (for stuff that generaly don't just pop up on google)and search the forum instead; I've only started reading it a few months ago and it's incredible how much I've learned since then (I mean how much some people know and thank God-and them, of course- they're willing to share). So stick around, you never know what you come across here ;).

Happy that everything has been cleared up and hopefully if someone reads the youtube comments, they will now know the truth. Not a big fan of Prince either...music is just not my thing.
