    Tina was genuinely poor and naive, and I believe her apology was sincere. We cannot expect artists without any substantive secondary education -- even ones that we love -- to be informed on the...

    Good for Dionne. I am not crazy about that remix but I'm glad that she's open to it. I would encourage her to fully jump on the Ross bandwagon and start remixing her catalog. In the right hands, her...

    One of Smokey's classic compositions, recorded by The Marvelettes. Probably his most covered song ever. Still, this is the iconic version by which all others are measured.

    I appreciate thoughtful discussion on FBTP. It is just an unwelcome blip in her recording career for me, I am heartened that so many of her fans like it. I felt she let us down with it but clearly...

    "Change of Heart" really does sound like an outtake from Olivia Newton-John's "Physical" album 10 years earlier in 1980. And that's no shade on ONJ because she's fabulous. But I agree there was no...

    His songs have a sweep and grandeur that suits Ross perfectly. She could remake any number of his songs and she would sound wonderful.

    So many lovely songs in his catalogue. It is a mystery to me...

    All of these are great. But the platinum standard of duets is Luther Vandross and Cheryl Lynn "If This World Were Mine." It is soulful magic. But perhaps it is not here because it is not truly...
