What a Fool Believes" is a song written by Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins. The best-known version was recorded by The Doobie Brothers (with McDonald singing lead vocals) for their 1,978 album Minute by Minute. The single reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on April 14, 1,979, remaining in that position for one week. The song received Grammy Awards in 1,980 for both Song of the Year and Record of the Year.
"What a Fool Believes" was one of the few non-disco No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 during 1,979. The song lyrics tell a story of a man who is reunited with an old love interest and attempts to rekindle a romantic relationship with her before discovering that one never really existed.
Michael Jackson claimed to have contributed at least one backing track to the original Doobie Brothers recording, but was not credited for having done so
