Song Lyric Sunday | “Everchanging Times” – Siedah Garrett

Song Lyric Sunday banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “Songs from movies.”


Singer/songwriter Siedah Garrett has written songs and performed background vocals for some of the biggest names in music. She scored hits duets with Dennis Edwards in 1984, Don’t Look Any Further, and Michael Jackson, I Just Can’t Stop Loving You in 1987.

But it was as a solo artist Siedah sang Everchanging Times, the theme song from 1987’s Baby Boom, starring Diane Keaton. The song peaked at #30 on the Adult Contemporary chart in 1987.

Everchanging Times is a great song about a woman trying to deal with the fast-paced changes of life, determined to not sacrifice love. Though it’s from an 80s movie, the song is timeless and its theme still quite relevant today.


  • Garrett has been nominated for two Academy Awards for Best Original Song, and won the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media at the 50th Grammy Awards for co-writing Love You I Do (performed by Jennifer Hudson) for the 2006 musical film, Dreamgirls.
  • Thinking she was simply answering a call to only appear as a background vocalist on I Just Can’t Stop Loving You, Siedah initially felt intimidated with excitement when she entered the recording booth and noticed two music stands with sheet music that had lyric parts labeled “Michael” and “Siedah”.
  • Siedah co-wrote Michael Jackson’s #1 hit, Man in Mirror. In a 2013 interview she said, “I needed to send it through Quincy {Jones} because if Quincy didn’t like it there was no way that Michael would ever hear it. It was a huge privilege for me when Quincy decided that the song was good enough to play for Michael.”
