Day 73. Today I’m dedicating this post to all of the people who HAVE or have HAD a special someone. The other night while at dinner with one of the most special people in my life, truly a god-send, I looked into her eyes from the across the table and she asked in her normal bashful tone, “whuuaat! what are you looking at?” I wish at the moment that Stephanie Mills would have jumped out from behind the kitchen door and started singing this song to us beneath the candle light.
(What’s up with the “big eyeballs” expression @ 0:22, see pic above..lol)
Sticking with the 80’s, I picked another artist who soared to fame with the song, with the really long title, “Never Knew Love Like This Before.” I’m not sure how many of you remember Stephanie, but I was in love with her as a kid. I didn’t have posters or anything like that, but I did have my mom’s album covers and I sure thought she was gorgeous and I liked her voice. Stephanie Mills won Best R&B Female Performance and Best R&B Song at the 23rd Grammy Award Show in 1980. Where is Stephanie now!?? She also had this hit song as well.
