There was something distinctive about 80s music, wasn't there? A lot of it resonated with the Minnesota sound via Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, which meant there were the requisite drum machines and synthesizers. And, of course, all the videos of hit songs were the bomb.
Wasn't the video for "Tender Love" one where the group singing it were lounging on the front stoop of a NY tenement building? There was a story going around that the lead singer, who was snaggled toothed, was an ex-con - or was on parole, or something. Later I remember reading that he died.
