I remember this song.It was interesting.Great video too lol

Nolan was a good singer.In 1987,he had a great duet with a singer named Monet....a cool slow jam called "Leave The Lights On".


I once did a thread on this song and got no responses,lol.I guess it didn't do very well.Here in the Bay Area,it was popular.

I guess it's in the eye of the beholder - top 10 dance hit also charted Hot 100. But if it's new to you...enjoy. I never liked this one, but I do like the one David posted.

he also had a song called "too white" that was pretty good. the song talked about how record companies kept telling him that he sounded too white and needed to sound black when singing.

I liked this song...obscure? not really, it was a pretty big hit when it was out...I remember hearing during recess @ school bumping out of cars 'n such... biggrin (don't tell anybody but I never saw the Video and didn't know the guy was white!)HA!

There's a little part that was used in "I'll Take Your Man" by Salt-N-Pepa, on the extended single version.
