AC hit of Rose Royce 1976-1985


Disco/R&B crew Rose Royce hit the Adult Contemporary chart only once, but it's memorable. From the movie Car Wash (which I've yet to see), this is a sweet slow jam that I've loved since I first heard it on the AM radio back in '77.  Dude wants to get next to a woman, but she spurns his advances.   That doesn't keep a guy from tryin', though. The verse melody is okay, but man-oh-man that chorus is smooth soul goodness nonpareil. The third single released from the Car Wash soundtrack, this song also reached #10 on the pop chart and #3 on the soul chart.
