Flashback Friday - DeBarge "Love Me In A Special Way"

I'm rewriting a script set in the '80. I've been listening to a LOT of '80s music lately.

I read El DeBarge is making a comeback. Does this mean that Al B. Sure isn't far behind?

I loved this song and played it to death. El had a beautiful voice.

I totally remember the cover art from this album. I wish folks would stop trying to bring back 80's fashion. It wasn't fly the first time around.

Have a great weekend!

Word, wurd, and werd on the 80's fashion comment! Nice flashback, though. I liked "The Dream," which was sampled by everybody and their mama. Happy weekend & happy writing!

Did you see the UNSUNG special about DeBarge. So good in that Behind the Music Way. Super sad though.

somepinkflowers - I LOVE Pat Benatar. What a voice. And yes I know all the words to a few REO song. heh

simone - I think he's also a radio DJ. I used to own an Al B. Sure cassette.

viajera - he totally does.

redbonegirl97 - I would assume quite a bit.

rose in cali - I like "The Dream" too. I hope DeBarge received some money from all the sampling.

nichelle - no...I haven't seen. I did read there was a lot of dysfunction in that family. Sad.
