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…
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.
