"All Of My Love," The Gap Band (12/23/89)
What an odd way to end the decade. Charlie Wilson and company hadn't hit the top 10 in 3 years, and hadn't hit #1 in nearly 7 (since their '82 trio of killers: "Early In The Morning," "You Dropped A Bomb On Me," and "Outstanding," all still classics), yet here they were, making another (and their final) comeback. Sadly, this is as generic as much of what came before it at the top of the charts in late '89; were it not for Charlie's vocals - and even he seems oddly reigned in, like a Xerox copy of himself - this could be practically anyone. It's just another uptempo, perky song that says nothing and signifies even less. Sigh. C
