hiya,Paul..all three are right..i intentionally named these quizzes "on the radio" since there's always discrepancy it seems between what people consider a song of a certain year..released in '80 but didn't hit the radio till '81 - that kind of thing..i've learned this in boardgames  ::)
for what it's worth,i just found this from Patti Austin's discography:
"essential Patti Austin songs Baby Come To Me (with James Ingram, 1981)"  :)
