Okay, perhaps it's just me. Here's a handful of my favorite songs by folks whom I had to Google to match the name with the tune.
Champaign had a pretty slick hit with the quiet storm staple "Try Again".
"Send For Me" is another midnight staple. Atlantic Starr it is. Why Starr is spelled with 2 R's remains an unsolved mystery.
Art of Noise made this popular step show anthem.
I know all about Evelyn Champagne King, but had no idea this was one of her songs.
Honest to goodness, I swear I didn't know this was Stevie Wonder all those years. Go head' and revoke my black card. I deserve it.
Few people know Bobby Caldwell as the guy behind the classic "What You Won't Do For Love". Even fewer know he's a white dude.
Honorable Mention: "Ring My Bell" by Anita Ward, "Double Dutch Bus" by Frankie Smith, "Mama Used To Say" by Junior, "Pass The Dutchie" by Musical Youth, Shake You Down" by Gregory Abbott, "Piano in the Dark" by Brenda Russell, "Get Here" by Oleta Adams, "How Can I Ease The Pain" by Lisa Fischer, "Written All Over Your Face" by Rude Boys, "Better Days" by Dianne Reeves.
Question: Got any "hey, who sang this song?"'s of your own?!? Let us help you. Note: We're not necessarily talking about one-hit-wonders here.
