Lionel Richie turns 70 today: 70 facts about his long career

I normally when I think of Lionel Richie do not think that he is actually 70 years old today. How time flies.

In honor of his birthday, here is a great 70 fact presentation on the legend.
I learned a lot I did not know.

Happy Birthday Lionel.

Lyric line(s) that make you go WOW!

I had to go for a drive this morning and I decided to burn a few cds to listen to on the way. One was Tempts vs Tops and the other was Supremes vs Marvelettes.

Today was one of those days where I listened more intently to the lyrics and was floored by some of them.

I'll Turn to Stone:
I would be like a statue in the park
Cold and alone like a man without a heart

Love Child:
Don't think that I don't need you
Don't think I don't want to please you
But no child of mine will be bearin'
The name of shame I been wearin."

Ask the Lonely:
The young and foolish laugh at love
So they run away
Confident and sure that fate
Will bring another love their way

My Whole World Ended:
How can I face tomorrow,
When yesterday is all I see?
I just don't wanna face tomorrow, if you're not sharing it with me.

Wow, some great stuff there.
What are some of your picks?
