give musicians (and artists) the power that Barry White had. Too many today think they are hot (?) but are merely self-involved and not giving anything that suggests lovemaking or feels even remotely sensual.
Barry White – he knew seduction. The music was luscious, high quality and fun, even prosocial.
Notice the lyrics: no sob stories, no mother blaming, no blaming of an ex or of exes, no hate of feminism, no fear of intimacy, no contempt for children, no worry about his masculinity – none of that, but a departure from all that:
delight in pleasure.
With the implied hope for more. Not only for more pleasure, but for love too.
He got it.
