I used to play "Sweetheart" by Frankie and the Knockouts on the rotation. They were from New Brunswick, New Jersey, and had a few other minor hits in the early 80's. The group broke up around 1987. Tico Torres played drums for the group before he later joined Bon Jovi, and their singer Frankie Previte co-wrote two major hit songs from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack: "I've Had The Time Of My Life" (which won the "Best Song" at the Academy Awards) and Eric Carmen's "Hungry Eyes".
If you're interested, I would suggest getting the group's 1999 compilation: "The Sweetheart Collection".
"I've never been to me" was one of the theme songs from the movie "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" with Guy Pearce (Memento, LA Confidential).
