"Easy Love" by Dionne Warwick

Song#:  0406
Date:  11/22/1980
Debut:  88
Peak:  62
Weeks:  10
Genre:  Pop, Adult Contemporary

Pop Bits:  This second single from Warwick's "No Night So Long" album couldn't drum up much support to move far up the pop chart, but it did well at AC peaking at #12. Although this song didn't hit the R&B chart, its flip side "We Never Said Goodbye" did peaking at #41.

ReduxReview:  This is a nice, breezy tune for Warwick. It doesn't come close to the heights of her major hits, but it's a respectable outing and enjoyable. I'm not sure if it was the best choice for a single though.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  In 1980, Warwick became the weekly host of the TV show "Solid Gold." The show featured a countdown of the week's top songs and had performances by musical guest artists. Warwick would sometimes perform duets with the guests. She also sang the title song. The show was famous for the Solid Gold dancers who would come out and do routines to the countdown songs. (Side note: I knew a Solid Gold dancer!)
