    Who had a hit with this song?

    "Endless Love"

    c. Diana Ross and Lionel Richie
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    It held the #1 spot on the charts longer than any other song in 1981.
    Now to get extra funky, what song knocked it out of the #1 spot??

    I got into a good discussion with my radio station's program director about this song... he thought it was crap and I said it was a future #1er. <G>

    This came out when I was music director for WABK-FM. First time I heard it,
    I told the program director that it was to be a future #1 song on the
    charts. He argued with me that it was a piece of crap and would flop... to
    put it nicely <G> I told him one reason it would do so well was because of
    how Aretha's vocals just overpowered George Michael's and made her shine
    as she should. In a few weeks it was #1 on 4 different charts concurrently!

    1986? I missed hearing that one. It sounds totally unfamiliar
    to me. I might have to agree with your prg director.. there's
    nothing overly special about it. Songs tend to do well that can
    distinguish themselves from others competing for attention.

    Aretha *does* have a distinctive voice. She'd probably stand
    out in any duet or remake and do well.

    Yes '86 was the year. There's numerous factors that determine how well a
    song may do:
    - mass appeal sound
    - recognizable rhythm
    - uniqueness
    - hot artist/group

    For example, back in that era if Madonna released a song of her just
    belching, it'd be a top 10 hit because of the fact it's Madonna. The particular song in the question however had 3 of the 4 elements:
    - it has a mass appeal sound
    - it was a good "toe tappin" tune, good recognizable beat to it
    - George Michael was a teen throb and Aretha had her last hurrah comeback
    at that time - and she was hotter than ever too.

    It's fate was sealed to be a chart topper. A no doubter.

    Aretha *does* have a distinctive voice. She'd probably stand
    out in any duet or remake and do well.

    Absolutely! Coming off her hits such as Who's Zoomin' Who and Freeway of Love this was a great way to cap her chart topping hits. With this duet, she starts off just sort of keeping pace with Michael then she builds it up and nails him. He would have been better off just letting her finish solo.

    I agree this is a massive song and well worth the time to listen to :)
    Have always enjoyed it and agree the vocal combo was a genius move.
