"Love Me for a Reason"

was a popular single by The Osmonds and Boyzone.
Written by Johnny Bristol and produced by Mike Curb, "Love Me for a Reason" was The Osmonds' last top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, reaching #10, it peaked at #2 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. In the UK it fared even better, spending three weeks at the top in August 1974.
The song was revived by Boyzone in 1994, becoming their breakthrough single in the UK, reaching #2 on the UK singles chart in December that year.

Boyzone opened the door for fellow Irish boy band, Westlife. Since Boyzone split in 2000, Ronan Keating has made a career from going solo and has released five albums; Stephen Gately released a modestly successful solo album and is now pursuing a career in stage acting and particularly West End musicals, starring in the Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat"; Mikey Graham has also pursued solo projects and now works as a music producer; Keith Duffy has appeared in the British Soap "Coronation Street" as well as a number of theatre productions in Ireland; Shane Lynch recently appeared on the Reality TV Show, "Celebrity Love Island".
