"Seasons Change" is a popR&B song written and produced by Lewis Martineé for the American girl group Exposé's debut album, Exposure (1987). It was the group's fourth single released. The song's lyrics describe relationships fading away due to the changes brought about by time (on both people and events). It is something of a sentimental break-up song, though not about any person in particular. It's not typical of this group's dance-pop-oriented sound, yet it remains their biggest hit to date. Angie Vollaro of fellow Lewis A. Martineé group Sequal lent background vocals to this song.

Reception

Released at the end of 1987 as the album's fourth single, the ballad remains the group's biggest hit to date, as it went to number one on the Adult Contemporary chart and topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 [1] for one week on February 20, 1988. The single also reached number ninety-seven in the United Kingdom.
