Alexander O’Neal – If You Were Here Tonight

Well, it’s Valentine’s Day so why not a bit of lovers’ music?

Turn down the lights, play this to the one you love and sing into that hair brush like every word comes from the bottom of your heart.

(Strictly speaking the lyrics don’t work if they’re there in front of you but I’m sure they’d appreciate the gesture and you might get some hot lovin’ after anyway)

Alexander O’Neal – Never Knew Love Like This

So, first things first: Alexander O’Neal is a G. He’s made some massive tunes that smash up dancefloors which you should really know about already. He did a few duets with Cherrelle in the 80s that were some serious lovers’ tunes and this was one of them. Big man riddim…

Awesome things: Alexander O’Neal’s fashion sense

Alexander is one of my favourite r&b/soul singers. The man can sing his heart out and has a super distinctive voice that always sounds totally wicked. In the 80s he was a big, big deal selling out arenas all over the shop and rightly so, his hits from back there were absolutely top.

He usually rocked the suave gentleman look while on stage: sharp suits done well but there are a few videos of him around where he is showing some amazing fashion sense off. I wish I looked as cool as him in these clips

The yellow suit

Saturday Love – what a tune. This yellow suit is seriously amazing, not many people could pull this off but Mr O’Neal makes it looks fresh. Shame about the crappy clip :(

Furry collared leather jacket, white scarf and argyle jumper

Innocent – another great tune but, wow, this outfit is off the hook. No wonder all the girls are all over him, this look is increds. I have to admit he doesn’t look as good towards the end when the jacket comes off to reveal a tank top underneath…should have kept it on, pal.

Totally badman tracksuit with white shirt

Saturday Love again, I honestly can’t explain how much I love this tune. Anyway, that’s not what we’re on about here. The fact that he’s crooning away wearing what appears to be a black & white tracksuit with a shirt underneath is brave. I don’t how but he looks so fucking cool in this.

Alex, I take my hat off to you…

ps just found out that he sang backing vocals on SOS Band – The Finest which makes him even more awesome
