It Might Be You – Stephen Bishop

In this video

  • This is the theme song to the 1982 romantic comedy Tootsie, starring Dustin Hoffman and Jessica Lange. Although Bishop had written for movies before, such as the title theme to Animal House in 1978, this tune was written by Alan and Marilyn Bergman, the Oscar-winning lyricists behind “The Way We Were” and “The Windmills Of Your Mind,” and jazz musician Dave Grusin. “It was an assignment,” Bishop told Songfacts of his Tootsie gig. “I’d been around for a while. The producers knew what I sounded like and they paid me quite a lot of money to do it. I remember they had me watch about four hours of the unedited movie, mostly with Kenny Loggins’ music as a temp.”
  • This expresses the singer’s lifelong search for someone to share his life with and the possibility that he’s found her. In the movie, Hoffman, who disguises himself as a woman to get a job, befriends Lange and starts developing feelings for her. Marilyn Bergman told Performing Songwriter: “Tootsie‘s about a man who had to become a woman to become a better man. Because the song’s all iffy, with all the might’s and if’s, you know that this guy is getting ready to make a commitment.”
