“Pamela“ is a pop rock song written by David Paich and Joseph Williams for the 1988 Toto album The Seventh One. It was the first single from the album, and it peaked at #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart becoming their final US hit to date.
The song was written by David Paich and Joseph Williams. Paich had first written the chorus, music and words, including the name, “Pamela”. Williams happened to have a girlfriend at the time named “Pamela”, and had already written a song for her by the same name. The chorus of Williams’s song was used in the bridge, and Williams wrote new words and melody for the verses as well.
