.......All Night Long (All Night) by Lionel Richie. Don't you love that he explains in parenthesis how long all night long lasts? All night, duh! Lionel Richie, believe it or not, was pretty much the shit in 1983. He was a big as Michael Jackson at that point and All Night Long (All Night) was the lead single from Richie's second solo album, the hugely successful Can't Slow Down. It hit #1 in the US on November 12, 1983 and stayed there for four weeks. It is one of the most memorable hits of the 80s, says me. The video to the song is so 80s it makes my eyes bleed: bright colors, a mish-mash of dance styles (someone does the robot, for gay's sake), asymmetrical haircuts, Lionel's Jheri curl, etc. Now listen to the vaguely Caribbean sounds of Lionel Richie and dance all night long. In case you are wondering how long that's all night.
