** "Take Me Down" and "The Closer You Get" were both recorded by Exile back in that band's pop-rock era. (Incidentally, Exile would escape its OneHitWonder status by reinventing itself as a country music band somewhat in Alabama's image.)
** "Touch Me When We're Dancing" was first a hit for a Muscle Shoals studio band called... wait for it... Bama. It was covered up by The Carpenters before Alabama covered ''them'' up.

* JumpingTheShark: Many fans think that their sound got tired around ''Just Us'' in 1987 (their last album with Harold Shedd as producer, and the album that produced their only non-#1 hit of the 1980s, the highly egotistical track "Tar Top").
