Written by British songhwriter Florrie Palmer, the song was from Easton’s debut studio album, Take My Time. The song was originally called “9 to 5” but the title was changed to avoid confusion with the Dolly Parton song of the same name which was charting nearly simultaneously. “Morning Train (9 to 5)” is Sheena Easton’s biggiest hit in the United States and was one of the best-selling singles of the year. The song also reached number one in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. #sheenaeaston #morningtrain #morningtrainninetofive #morningtrain9to5 #9to5 #billboardnumberones #florriepalmer #takemytime #dollyparton #australia #canada #newzealand #tonyatlarge #eclectimaniacradioshow #todayinmusic #musichistory
