You're The One For Me is the title track of the 1982 debut album by D-Train. Released as a single late 1981, You're The One For Me topped the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart for 2 weeks in February 1982. In 1985, UK producer and singer-songwriter Paul Hardcastle remixed the club classic for a whole new audience - The single peaked at No. 15 on the UK Singles chart.
A quote found on the back of the record sleeve for the UK 12" vinyl pressing of the Paul Hardcastle remix states,
"In 1981 there was a record that really impressed me. That record was You're The One For Me by D-Train. When Peter Robinson at RCA asked me to remix it I just couldn't resist the temptation of working on a record that has had so much influence on my career." - Paul Hardcastle, July 1985.
A year earlier, in 1984, Paul Hardcastle paid homage to You're The One For Me when he released a cover version of the song. It's quite possible that as a result of Paul's cover version, he was asked to remix the original track by D-Train.
