The Listening: "Everlasting Love"

I know it sounds dated but that doesn't take away from its strength or that of the burly-voiced Tony Terry and it's not just nostalgia. While the late eighties/early nineties soulsters style has not preserved its cool, I think there is something to that brand of love song (See my earlier Tony Terry post at VIBE). It's unselfconscious. It's without hedge or posture. It's wedding song material, perfectly crafted for exaggerated slow dance. And, yes, I do like the opening horn solo.
