"All Night With Me" is a classic 80's piano-ballad that then gets volume at the chorus. It's akin to what Whitney would do with "Saving All My Love For You." Call it a pop power-ballad. And that potent powerhouse voice of hers is what saved some of her lesser albums.
Then comes her most famous song, intro'd by a blazing synthesizer, then those familiar infectious synth chords. "Gloria" is about a woman on the run whose frantic goals are gonna lead to a reckoning, a breakdown, or something else: "Gloria (Gloria), I think they got your number (Gloria)/I think they got the alias (Gloria) that you've been living under (Gloria)/But you really don't remember, was it something that they said?/Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?"
"Lovin' You Baby" sets the standard for her heartbreak/being dumped songs that would permeate on her future albums. A rock guitar punctuates this pop power ballad, especially sung in the chorus: "Where would I be, how could I live?/Where would I go, and what would I give?/What can I say, how do I stand?/Where do I fall if there's no more lovin' you baby?"
"Livin A Lie" puts the pedal on the metal, with a quick-paced rock-beat accompanying this speeding down the highway number.Read more ›
