About the Single

Charles Koppelman was Streisand’s record producer in 1981. He brought in Jay Landers. “Charles asked me to find some material for a compilation he was working on with her, which became Memories,” Landers explained. “So I brought her ‘Comin’ In And Out Of Your Life,’ which was a song I’d come across a few months earlier. That was my first association with her. Then she recorded a few other songs I published or found for her.”

Bobby Whiteside wrote “Comin’ In and Out of Your Life”. “[Barbra] had a few changes she wanted to make in the song,” Whiteside said. “A couple of line changes. One or two words, nothing major. Just a couple of things she felt a little funny singing— not for any reason other than she needed an explanation. She wanted to know what we meant by a certain line or two. I think I was on the phone with London three or four times while she was recording.”

The “B-side” of the single was Barbra's solo version of “Lost Inside of You” which also appeared on the Memories album.
