"Rise to the Occasion" is a song by English pop duo Climie Fisher, from their debut album Everything. Released as a single in 1987 as the fourth single from the album, it was a top 20 hit in seven countries, including the Netherlands and South Africa where it reached No. 1.
A popular remix by PWL's Phil Harding and Jamie Bromfield called the "Hip Hop Mix" was also released as the A-side on 7" and 12" formats. It was after the success of this mix that "Love Changes (Everything)" was re-released in 1988 and became a much bigger hit this time round. The song's music video was directed by Dieter Trattmann.
In 1989, Jermaine Jackson covered "Rise to the Occasion" as a duet with La La for his album Don't Take It Personal.
