Not my usual - Bonnie Pointer

There are so many things I like about this song.
  • The two harmonics that open the song (which happen to be exactly the same ones used on Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" many years later)
  • The bass is way up front and center in the mix - very unusual but the licks are so tasty!
  • The use of the "Boooooooo" disco noise made popular in Anita Bell's "Ring My Bell"
  • The fact that its sung by Bonnie Pointer of the Pointer Sisters
  • The elusive nature of trying to categorize it. Country? Pop Ballad? R&B? All of the above.
Even the sappy lyrics seem to work here. I don't usually go in for this type of track, but if you can look beyond the fluffy top layer, there is a lot going on with this song.

Give it a shot and hit me up in the comments with your thoughts.

Bonnie Pointer - More and More
