Lionel Richie & Diana Ross – “Endless Love” – (1981)

“What? Friends listen to ‘Endless Love’ in the dark” is one of my most-used quotes from Happy Gillmore. “Endless Love” was actually from a movie of the same name starring Brooke Shields. The movie is largely forgettable but the song it spawned was huge and remains much more famous. Billboard called it the greatest duet of all time, which I would call accurate. There have been successful covers, too (which we’ll get to in a few weeks). This would have been a much more appropriate song to post last Friday on Valentine’s Day.
