Songoftheday 2/5/17 - People always sayin' what you can and cannot do, well listen to me people I just do what I want to...

"Anything I Want" - Kevin Paige
from the album Kevin Paige (1989)
Billboard Hot 100 peak: #29 (one week)
Weeks in the Top-40: 5

Today's song of the day comes from dance-pop singer Kevin Paige, who scored a top-40 pop hit in the fall of 1989 with "Don't Shut Me Out". His follow-up single is another slice of blue-eyed funk, "Anything I Want". Written by Paige, it might not stand out in retrospect, but its fluid bassline and Kevin's sincere Jackson homage was enjoyable enough to blend in with the dance-oriented pop music of the late 80s...

"Anything I Want" became Paige's second and final top 40 pop hit in March of 1990. Since then he's become a clergyman in a music-oriented ministry, and released some records in that vein.
