Alex’s Lounge is Open! Tonight We Celebrate Luther!

Today would have been Luther Vandross’s 61st birthday. I still remember where I was when I saw the news of Luther’s death. His voice was truly golden. Honestly, there is just no one that can ever duplicate his perfect incredible voice.

In his honor, post your favorite Luther tunes. If you’re like me, its hard to really make any singular one a favorite, the man just had so many songs where you hear the first few notes and you’re melting. I think when Luther goes from “If Only For One Night” into “Creep” with that “and its gonna be tonight”……….who doesn’t have to fan themselves right then and there? Oh Luther, we miss you!

I think I’ll post this one, I just happened to be listening to it when I saw a tweet that it was his birthday:

    Late and about to retire, but my favorite still is “Searchin” when he had the group, whose name escapes me. Good nite POU. Enjoy your weekend.

    • GN

      Hit the town in the cold of the night,
      Lookin’ round for the warmth of the light
      There was fog on the run,
      So I guess no one saw me arriving..
      .~~~~~~~~~~
      Then my lights hit a welcoming sign, It said —
      If you ‘re alone you can make this your home if you want to…

  • GN

    Stop to Love; the bridge in that song is one of my favorites ever (“and one day you’ll discover, I’m the one who loves ya…”)

  • isonprize

    The bad boy’s swinging. Well alright!!

    Roll back the rug, everybody!! Move all the tables and chairs!!
    We’re gonna have us a good time tonight!!

    Almost no one can successfully cover Stevie Wonder (and Minni Ripperton singing backup!)–but Luther Vandross did. Epic. Creepin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YxWp3eHq1k
