Top Selling Albums of the 1980's - Spot #90
Early morning here in sunny South Africa and the house is quiet. A perfect time to present the album which slots in at #90.  This former member of the Commodore was one of the most successful balladeers of the 80’s.
### Lionel Richie’s album of the same name *Lionel  Richie,*  released in 1982 amassed over 4.3 million in sales and had 3 US number One singles  ###
The ballad *Truly* was the first US #1 and reached #6 in the UK singles chart….

*Truly*
<br> *I must admit I had many pleasant interludes to this man’s music…. {grin}* </br>
Ballads aside, Lionel also delivered some infectious dance and catchy pop music. Another US #1 from the album *You Are* falls into this category …. Crank it up and get those feet tapping.

*You Are*

Okay, maybe not that funky !! I love the instrumentation… motown / soul musicians are a special breed I reckon. The music stands on it’s own , even should one remove the vocalist it would be enjoyable.

The last US #1 from the album *My Love* is another easy listening tune and one for your seduction playlist.

*My Love*
### This album was certainly more pleasant to review than some of the previous … albeit far removed from my rock preference.  Share your thoughts about this kind of music and the memories it brings back. I would love to hear your thoughts ###
### As always, thanks for stopping by and your support is fully appreciated ###

*Footnote: This project was inspired by the publication “The 100 Best Selling Albums of the 80’s” authored jointly by Peter Dodds, Justin Crawthorne, Chris Barret and Dan Auty and published by Amber Books (ISBN: 1-904867-12-1).This and other great music inspired books can be found on their website www.amberbooks.co.uk*

Finally, we are in sync on some music that we both (kinda?) appreciate, like and respect! This guy in your review had some truly great songs. Well great, at least good enough for me to never bin this guy and his music. Lionel is for sure a great artist, knows how to sign, and knows to great music with a certain quality to it :)

Posts usually go into POST section. When you also want your posts in your BLOG section, then you reHIVE you rposts. Some UI's give the option to tell to publish the post in POST and BLOG section at the same time (PeakD does this for instance).
