Jermaine Stewart – “We Don’t Have to Take Our Clothes Off” – (1986)

This is the song that Jermaine Stewart is known for. He had other singles so I won’t go calling him a one-hit wonder, but this was as big as it was going to get for him. Unfortunately, Mr. Stewart passed in 1997 from AIDS-related liver cancer. The song was used in an episode of Miami Vice, which helped its popularity. It’s a catchy, pop R&B tune that sounds like a mix of Michael Jackson and Prince (but that last part might because he is in a very Prince-like pose on the album cover)… if only there were doves flying out from behind him it would complete the 80s cliché.
