Oh what a classic. Though it was the top song of 1986, did you know it was recorded by Rod Stewart originally in 1982? So this is a cover - that's wild!
This was a charity song, made for the American Foundation for AIDS Research, and it raised over $3 Million for the cause. The song also won a Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, as well as Song of the Year. Whew.
I needed both an uplifting song and a throwback today, and my darling Meg suggested this while we were figuring out better tickets for our upcoming 98 Degrees, NKOTB, & Boyz II Men concert in June. This one is just awesome - from the boys doing a great soundtrack number to the inclusion of the legend that is Stevie Wonder, I just never have gotten sick of this in my life. Besides, who doesn't need a quick reminder of the right choice to make?
Oh my ghetto little Motown boys, I love you.
Because songs define our moments.
