Awesome bass work on this one. I always thought this song had a nice Micheal McDonald feel to it.

It's probably the part of the album that's aged best.

If I had to pick a favorite Lionel song this would be it. Hands down. Never listened to an entire Lionel Richie album there may be more lesser known gems on them as well.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

On his next album,Lionel tried to remake/copy this song.He came up with "Love Will Conquer All".It's a good song,but not nearly as good as the song it rips off.

It's a solid tune once you move past the maddeningly saccharine lyrics. After a short time he experienced difficulty sustaining momentum as a solo act.

A lot of it was personal issues with his marriage and his father's declining

health which kept him away from music and the musical landscape changed a hell of a lot while he away even in the pop genre. It got bad

for Lionel when his daughter was more popular than he was. lol

I found this in a used record store for $6 a couple of years ago. Never knew it existed. I love the disc with all of the Demo songs.
