[Peep the originators – Pay homage]

Today’s Grammy Chase features the group Rose Royce, inspired by TV1’s Unsung series. Every episode has been a must watch. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been a positive story yet, as all of the entertainment stories seem to end either tragically or the stars burn out and plummet back to earth.

Unfamiliar with Rose Royce? Maybe this album cover will refresh your mind. Maybe this opening line of the song “Car Wash” will jump-start your memory. “You may not ever get rich/But let me tell ya it’s better than diggin’ a ditch..”
The double-album and soundtrack for the movie Car Wash, performed by Rose Royce was there debut LP that reportedly sold 2 million copies and propelled the movie itself into a classic. You’ll have to watch Unsung on TV1 to find out how the group fell apart within its first 4 years or so, after selling multi-platinum. Misunderstanding, Egos and Money will do it EVERY time.

In the end, my point and interest in posting this, was the Grammy: Rose Royce is not credited with winning a Grammy, but the composer and owner of the label did. The award for Album Of Best Original Score Written For A Motion Picture Or Television Special went to Norman Whitfield at the 19th Annual Grammy Awards.
