Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji

Can you feel if there is a newborn baby named Luka was born on the second floor of a hotel? Seemly, it was so sweet. Now, since this song came out in 1987, Luka is 30 years old. What's your memory when you live since 1987? My memory is to see a newborn baby at home. About this song: "Luka" is track #2 on her second studio album, "Solitude Standing", released on 1 April 1987. It was one of many songs from this album written prior to 1987. The power ballad was written in 1984 with a little help from Peter Wood and Jon Gordon as the composer of this song. "Luka" was the most popular song in her career to date with reaching #3 on Billboard's Pop Chart, #23 on the UK Singles Chart, and also entering the Top 40 internationally. After "Luka" success during the 1980s, sometimes she have another hit single but as a collaboration with DNA titled "Tom's Diner".
