    Lionel has been on a roll. I think he received a songwriters award recently. All his catalog has aged like fine wine.

    Welp, there ya have it! To be clear, itís the title cut only that I canít stand, not the whole LP, which has oodles of great moments. Itís the only track of his that I hated at first listen. [I was still in high school myself.] Just commercialism run amuck. Still skip it today. But he certainly is long overdue for this honor; his overall body of work is indispensable [especially his early Commodores material].

    Yeah, that Fred Astaire/Royal Wedding bit. Meh. Loved "Se La" and "Say You, Say Me," though.

    That's fair. Nice trade-off. I can appreciate where you're coming from.

    "Hello" & "Stuck On You " are my favorite faves from Lionel's mighty pen. The "Hello" vid with the actress as a blind sculptor stuck with me forever!

    He had a great run throughout the 70s and 80s. Well deserved

    Our R&B/Soul national treasure! Love him on AI too. Did you all see him give Re-Re's grand some honest, constructive criticism? The man is a uber beast! Whatever happened to the Commodores? Heard nothing else after Nightshift, which was a touching tribute to Motown and Soul legends. On my playlist now.
