"Should I Do It" by The Pointer Sisters

Song#:  0887
Date:  01/23/1982
Debut:  82
Peak:  13
Weeks:  16
Genre:  Pop

Pop Bits:  The Sisters' "Slow Hand" became their biggest hit when it reached #2 and stayed there for three weeks. This follow-up single couldn't quite reach the Top 10, but its #13 showing made it the first time the trio got a pair of Top 20 hits from the same album. In this case the LP "Black & White."

ReduxReview:   Although not one of their most famous hits, this girl-group tune is hard to resist. I have to admit than I don't purposely seek this one and I often think - eh, it's not great. But then it starts playing and I can't help bouncing along. It doesn't rank among their best, but it's always a fun listen.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  The success of "Slow Hand" and the LP helped to secure the Sisters a couple of Grammy nominations. They got a nod for Best Pop Vocal for "Slow Hand" and then one for Best R&B Performance Duo or Group for the "Black & White" album.
