Song of the Day: Philip Bailey - Easy Lover

As I mentioned a few months ago, my parents came across a few 45s in the attic last year, and I brought them back home with me. A number of them were instantly familiar, but staring at the cover art for Philip Bailey's "Easy Lover," I couldn't think of how the song went.

Putting it on the turntable, I was delighted to find that not only did I remember it, but it still holds up pretty well. You can tell in a nanosecond that it's from the '80s - his falsetto doesn't help that cause - but it's a really good rock song. Phil Collins - an underrated drummer - and Bailey sound good together, and I was glad to find something that I liked as an eight year old still resonated with me today.
