Lover. Lover.

"Loverboy (Extended Club Remix)" - Billy Ocean

Leslie Sebastian Charles - born in Trinidad and taking his new name from the Ocean Estate where he lived in London, Billy Ocean took the music world by storm in the mid-80's. The first track from the album, "Suddenly", was a #1 USA blockbuster called, "Caribbean Queen (No More Love On The Run)". This song is my favorite cut though and it peaked one place shy of the top spot on Billboard's Hot 100 in 1985. Later that same year Ocean performed at Live-Aid and won a Grammy for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. He's planning to tour the UK next year and there's also work being done on a new LP. Not bad for a gardener who lives in Berkshire now. Runs: 8:06.
