You can take a black guy to Nashville from right out of the cotton fields with bib overalls, and they will call him R&B. You can take a white guy in a pin-stripe suit who’s never seen a cotton field, and they will call him country. ~ O. B. McClinton

Christopher Cross - Arthur's Theme | Sailing

Clean Bandit - Stronger | Hold My Hand (with Jess Glynne)

Sherrie Lea - Spellbound

prince - Endorphinmachine

Chicago - Hard To Say I'm Sorry/Get Away

Al Jarreau - Rooftop Garden | Mornin'

Bobby Womack - Breezin'
Rupert Holmes - Escape *

Kenny Loggins - Whenever I Call You Friend (with Stevie Nicks) | Celebrate Me Home

Steely Dan - Peg

Boz Scaggs - Lido Shuffle | Lowdown

Ambrosia - How Much I Feel
Little River Band - Reminiscing

* I know people are tired of the "Pina Colada Song." But if folks just listen to the lyrics, and get what's going on, it's a great story. Both people are tired of their relationship, place a personal ad in the paper, both unaware of the other. They both answer each other's add and agree to meet at a bar. When she walks in, he recognizes her just by the curve of her face. They then realize they have more in common than they ever realized. I always thought it was such a clever story.

I may add to the list later.

Soooo many more. I realize these are mostly what I call "mood music" or more contemplative songs. I guess i'm a "melancholy" in that way. I decided not to foray into the uptempo stuff. But strangely enough if I did, Justin Timberlake's Like I Love You would've been one of the first off my fingertips

None. No matter how much I like a song, there's always a time that I think, okay, time for something else. I just like it that for whatever reason a song pops up in my head and I put on the album or look for it on YouTube. Or going through my record collection and thinking, oh, I haven't listened to that one in a while.
If you take any of this seriously, you're a bigger fool than I am.

I just remembered how much I love Robert Palmer singing "I didn't mean to turn you on" as a duet with B. J. Nelson.

But, everybody's choices on this thread are awesome too.

Yes, B. J. Nelson is a vocalist who Robert toured with. I love their version of "Tell Me I'm Not Dreaming" too. She has some solo work as well as background vocals on many many many albums and tours. My favorite song of hers is "Walk Beside Me". She is probably most recognized for touring with Duran Duran on their 1984 tour as a background vocalist.

I guess I never knew her name. She was up front with him for the "Early In The Morning" video, too.

She was also on Seven and the Ragged Tiger album for "Union of the Snake" and "The Reflex." She wasn't on Notorious, but I wonder if she was on the tour. I saw the Notorious Tour in Philadelphia, summer of 1987.

Not sure if she was on the Notorious tour or not. We were friends on Facebook at one time, maybe I'll friend her again and ask her.

I have being a huge fan of Duran Duran to thank for my interest in knowing who played with who, and loved seeing people that I admired and what they were doing, and I am thankful that my love of music expanded organically that way. I bought B.J.'s album on cassette when I found it and its unfortunate that I no longer have it due to my many moves over the years because to read about it now, it may have been a promo copy, as I see it's release reported a lot of places as "CD, Album".

I actually didn't attend a lot of shows until I got much older. I saw Luther Vandross in '88. Then it took a few years to go to other shows.

They are just so good. I'm also reminded of Ace and their hit "How Long," a song about the bass player (I believe) sorta tip-toeing out to play with another band and do other things. And the band found out and said, "hey, you with us or not?" It sounds like a song about a girlfriend being unfaithful to her man, but it's not. The dymanics are basically the same though.

Player's "Baby Come Back" doesn't get old either. I mean, who today writes a lyric like:

All day long, I'm wearing a mask of false bravado
Trying to keep up a smile that hides a tear


No one!

When I play the Yacht Rock station on Amazon, I never get tired of those songs. The Ace song, I think, has been re-recorded; a practice many bands are doing to regain their income even more.
