Songoftheday 6/9/17 - I got these friends they walk around so considered, bragging to the end like a car and clothes is all that's needed...

"All I'm Missing Is You" - Glenn Medeiros featuring Ray Parker Jr.
from the album Glenn Medeiros (1990)
Billboard Hot 100 peak: #32 (one week)
Weeks in the Top-40: 4

Today's song of the day comes from Hawaiian-born pop singer Glenn Medeiros, who landed a #1 hit in the summer of 1990 with his collaboration with Bobby Brown, "She Ain't Worth It". His follow-up paired him with another R&B artist with a history on the pop chart, Ray Parker Jr., who dominated the late 70s/early 80s with hits like "Jack And Jill", "The Other Woman", and the #1 theme to "Ghostbusters". "All I'm Missing Is You", written by Parker with Antonina Armato, was another light dance-pop confection that gave him new life on mainstream radio like "She Ain't Worth It" did, casting him a male "heartthrob" like Dino or Giorgio...

"All I'm Missing Is You" became Medeiros' third and final top-40 pop hit in October of 1990. The third and last single from the album, "Me-U=Blue", had him performing with the classic soul group the Stylistics, and reached #35 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary (or "easy listening") radio chart and #78 on the pop Hot 100. He has since returned to Hawaii to perform, write songs, and become a school principal.

Up tomorrow: Triple-threat soul group are pretty damn happy.
