The Many Modes of Melba Moore #4

Artist: Melba Moore
LP: 7" single
Song: "Livin' For Your Love" 
[ listen ]

Melba does not seem to be in the best of modes here—meekly modeling a sort of Prince/Michael Jackson mishmash, with shoulder pads stolen from Mildred Pierce. Peaking at #108, "Livin' For Your Love" didn't quite crack into the Billboard Hot 100, but the song did provide Ms. Moore with her second top ten hit on the Billboard Hot R&B singles charts, sailing all the way up to #6 in the spring of 1984.
