Same songwriter. Different year. (#4)

Robbie Nevil (born Robert S Nevil, 2 October 1958, in Los Angeles, California) is an American pop singer-songwriter/producer/guitarist. Nevil's self-titled debut album in 1986 gave him a string of Billboard Hot 100 hits. He is best remembered for the song "C'est La Vie," a #1 dance hit that spent two weeks at #2 on the Hot 100 in early 1987. Between 1986 and 1991, Nevil recorded three solo albums, the self-titled first being the most successful. In recent years, Nevil has been more involved in producing and writing for other artists than in solo performance. He co-wrote three songs on the chart-topping High School Musical soundtrack: "The Start of Something New", "We're All In This Together" and "I Can't Take My Eyes Off of You." He co-wrote the theme song to Hannah Montana, "The Best of Both Worlds", and co-wrote three other songs that appear on the Hannah Montana soundtrack album.
