:o  I was just listening to Richard Marx Greatest Hits in my car yesterday and I kept going back to that song.  I would say that is his best song also!

? Never heard of RFTW?
You must of not been around when the song came out. IIRC, it was a was a huge R&B hit at the time, and their follow up "Love You Down" was a makeout hit for the high school set.

This song and the band was all over the radio in '85.

Per Wikipedia: The band was known for having the very wettest Jheri curl in the industry.
Now you know that meant they were the s*** back then if you had the wettest Jheri curl! :D

I should know, 'cause I had a a Jheri curl too... :-[
If you were black in the 80's, it was our version of the mullet. :P

Just discovered this song.  I don't know why it has taken me so long to listen to early Accept as they are one of my favorite '80s metal bands and Restless And Wild through Russian Roulette have all enjoyed many hours on my turntable. Anyway, I can't stop listening to it.
