Crossroads created quite a few charting singles, starting with this one. Written by theme maestro Tony Hatch, it was sung by Sue Nichols who played Marilyn Gates, a waitress at Crossroads. Sue, of course, is now better known as Audrey Roberts in Coronation Street and has thankfully given up her career as a cabaret singer...

Stephanie de Sykes played Holly Brown, who recorded "Born With a Smile On My Face" in the recording studio which magically appeared underneath the reception area in the 1970's! No-one questioned why a motel has a recording studio...

And Steph was brought back to perform at Meg and Hugh's wedding, with a specially composed number "We'll Find Our Day".
