[sic] wildest dreams: a duet between Smokey Robinson and the late Marvin Gaye. With this single it's more than just wishful thinking." Neville Farmer from Music Week noted that it "seemed like a one-off, a throw back to the classic soul style which stuck out like a sore thumb in the midst of the electronic techno filling the charts." People Magazine said that "it would be hard to get a better soul vibe and groove than the exquisite "Would I Lie to You?"."

Randy Clark from Cashbox stated that "the two still manage to create a modern sound through production techniques and danceable beats". Tom Ewing from Freaky Trigger described it as "an irresistibly sweet record", adding that "it's dreaminess all the way down: if anyone’s going to end up hurt it'll be them, but that's an unimaginable outcome as long as the record's playing." Diane Rufer & Ron Fell from the Gavin Report commented, "What a hip single! Charles Pettigrew and Eddie Chacon incorporate a soulful sound reminiscent of R&B from years gone by, ala Sam and Dave etc. You only need one listen and we guarantee you'll push PLAY again.
