    I’m lovin’ the El DeBarge (DeBarge) stuff!
    Remember when he was on The Facts of Life & the girls group was “Sexy Lingerie” LOL

    P.S. I know difficult it is being without a computer.
    I’ve had 2 computer dumps since we’ve “known” eachother & yesterday my internet was down for about 6 hours. You don’t know how much you use it ’til it’s not there.

    Woo Hoo!
    Another Hard To Find Record Rip from DJ Paul!
    I only bought the singles The Rhythm Of The Night and Who’s Holding Donna Now but missed out on the latter two singles. So thanks for this wonderful rip of the M+M remix. A well deserved Club Play #1!
    You Do It Well!

    I only started to appreciate this song when I heard it on the radio a few years ago. I wonder why it took me so long! But it’s never too late, and now it’s my favourite DeBarge track by far.

    Thanks a lot, Paul!!

    You’re welcome Josmon10. It’s probably my favorite DeBarge track also.
