Hello? Is It Me You're Looking For?

Huw here.
I'm in a little bit of a predicament right about now. The reason for this predicament is due to Lionel Richie.
Now, you might be wondering how the Lord Of The Jheri Curl is meddling with my day to day thoughts. But the reason is pretty clear:

Is it bad that I more than just 'like' the pop stomper that is the brilliantly, and slightly comically named, 'All Night Long (All Night)'?

I just think the song has everything; soul, some tasty African influences fused with pop gloss, build-ups, break-downs, great melody, and ONE HELL OF A CHORUS.

Here's a quite bombastic performance of his at the '84 Olympics. He doesn't half milk it...

And don't even get me started on the video for 'Hello'...
