A Love Bizarre – by Sheila E. & Prince 

When I think about 1985’s Krush Groove (which doesn’t happen too often these days), two things comes to mind. The Fat Boys raiding a local Sbarro’s pizzeria (I really miss their Pizza), and Sheila E. singing Love Bizarre. Love Bizarre is one of my favorite songs. Written by Sheila E. and Prince, it’s a pop piece that puts Sheila front and  center on vocals. If you listen, you can hear Prince doing the backup vocals, which was a nice touch.  Normally, Sheila’s known for her drum work – she was part of the set of drummers Hans Zimmer brought in to work on the Man of Steel score.

The original radio edit of the song is about 4 minutes, but like most songs in the 1980s, we’re blessed with an extended 12 minute dance ’til you get tired mix. Love this song.
