Subject: Just another plea for help - 80's R&B lyrics

Written By: teakdude on 10/25/05 at 2:29 pm

This looks like the place to get it.

There is a song from the 80's, probably '85 or '86, that was making the rounds on the urban contemporary stations and it contained an intro that is making me crazy because I can't remember the rest of the song or the artist/s. I've looked all over trying to find a clue.

The song began with a very loud, almost wailing female accapella voice singing something like this:
    "I'm not the jury and you're not on the stand..."

It's one of the irressistable hooks that I found myself singing time and again...but never moving past those few lyrics.

I always thought - "Guilty" by Yarborough & Peoples; but I pulled out my old vinyls recently and it was not on the 12" version.

If somebody remembers or has a clue I would be eternally grateful and my mind would be at rest. Please help.
Thank you.

The group is called Starpoint and the song is "What You Been Missing"  It came out in 1985 I think.  There is a link on Youtube if you search the song title
