    Favourite 80s R&B songs?

    I'm interested to know what you guys like to listen to the most. What would you say your most favourite 80s R&B song is ever?

    Personally, I don't have a particular favourite but at the moment, I'm into Michael McDonalds Sweet Freedom album with all his classics on, Sweet Freedom being my favourite, great classic!

    Too many to mention. I'm currently into Narada Michael Walden, though. They finally released three of his best albums from the 80s on CD: Victory, Confidence and Looking At You Looking At Me. "Get Up!", "I Want You" and "Tina" have been on repeated play lately. Great songs!

    Today it's "Princess - Say I'm Your #1" :)

  • Hmmm. Definitely hard to narrow that down. But if I had to pick one off the top of my head I would say Sydney Youngblood - Ain't No Sunshine (I think he did that cover in 1989).

    Quick Run Through..

    I'll start by saying that im a sucka for a good bass line, its probably the first thing that draws me to a track, and MAKE'S the track imo, anyway...
    I'll try and just do one track from each artist.


    Anita Baker - Mystery (probably my favorite bass line.... ever)

    Teddy pendergrass - Love TKO (pretty sure its 1980) (Pure classic, its amazing how the bass coincides with the drums on this its just pure genius)

    SOS Band - Tell me if you still care

    Alexander O'neal - Sunshine

    Freddie Jackson - Have you ever loved somebody

    Mtume - Prime time (one of there lesser known tracks, but the bass on this one is just pure awesome)

    Lionel Richie - Running With the Night (Love when throw some guitar in with rnb, comes off excellent here)

    Sade - Nothing Can Come Between Us (I'm in a trance whenever i hear this)

    Will Downing - In My Dreams

    Shalamar - Full Of Fire

    Loose Ends - Slow Down

    Off the top of my head, theres plently more but thats gonna have to do it.
