Diana Ross: "Swept Away" - September 1984
Diana Ross - "Swept Away" - September 1984. An interesting album that I've always rather liked. It opens with "Missing You," a beautiful ballad written by Lionel Richie and dedicated to the recently deceased Marvin Gaye. The title track was written by Daryl Hall. The album also included a duet with Julio Iglesias, "All of You." All 3 singles were substantial hits. And then there's that hair.... I mean, how can you not love that hair? But the best part is the video for "Swept Away." It's so wonderfully awful and cheesy that it sorta transcends into genius pop art. Sorta.
