Robert Palmer - Addicted To Love
Happy birthday to the coolest Brit singer-songwriter-producer ever to have lived. Robert would have been 63 years old yesterday. He was born in Batley, Yorkshire, Great Britain on January 19, 1949 and passed away in Paris, France on September 26, 2003 at age 54. This is perhaps Robert's best known song worldwide, although he had been recording music since the '70s as a solo artist and others artists, including UB40, Little Feat, The Meters and Power Station. This song was originally a duet with R&B legend Chaka Khan but, for legal reasons, her vocal had to be removed before the single could be released. The video is legendary, too, and has often been spoofed and copied by artists including Tone Loc (Wild Thing).
