"Change" is a song written by Holly Knight and originally recorded by her then-band, Spider, who released the song on their 1981 second album, Between the Lines.

The following year, English musician John Waite, newly a solo artist after fronting The Babys, recorded a version.[1][2] It was released in 1982 as the lead single from Waite's Chrysalis Records album Ignition. The song reached No. 16 on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart. It was aided by a hugely popular MTV music video.[citation needed]

The song (Waite's version) was also featured on the 1985 Vision Quest soundtrack. The re-launched single entered the Billboard Hot 100 and climbed to No. 54.[1]
