    From the solo years, but the song that comes to mind is And If You See Him. She duets with herself on much of the song, which really adds to the song…

    Thanks for providing these chart statistics. While the momentum of her previous hits got WDFFIL airplay, that momentum did not lead to record sales. The public obviously enjoyed the record and...

    Absolutely! It is one of Diana’s biggest selling solo singles and was very well-received at the time of its release. I remember seeing Diana in concert in early 1982, just as Mirror, Mirror debuted...

    My thoughts as well—I heard Mary and Flo initially, but after the first lines, the Andantes’ vocals became prominent.

    I remember an interview in which she downplayed her songwriting skills by saying she’d always write “little ditty” songs like Work That Body. She stated she didn’t feel she had great songwriting...

    I Will Survive in concert is such a curiosity for me. I’ve seen Diana close more than 25 shows with the song. I never look forward to it, but am always swept away by the audience response. After...

    Not sure if this is true, but I read that Ashford & Simpson’s Solid was originally submitted to Diana in 1983 or 1984. What could have been—it became A&S’s biggest pop hit...

    Actually Diana kept All For One in her shows until 1983, typically as a closer or encore. She must have really enjoyed The Boss LP as Its My House, No One, the title track and All For One were all...

    My biggest surprise about this LP is I’m Gonna Make You Love Me was overlooked, the only top 40 hit missing from the collection. I’ll Try Something New was included, however.

    Absolutely! This was many years before the internet, so few people knew what was happening. I remember being happy to find WYTM, but thinking, “WYTM? Where is the FBTP single?”

    I don’t remember if the performance was lip syncing. It was such a creative visual—and yes, the audience ate it up—that I didn’t notice. I do remember she was wearing a white gown. The performance...
