What do women want?

When I was a kid all I ever heard women wanted was this one thing. I mean it was everywhere from commercials, movies and T.V. shows. What was it? It was Diamonds of course! Is it still true? One of my favorite 80's jams came from a horn tooting dude named Herb Alpert. Herb was a master at the horn and with his Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass band in the 60's and 70's. In 1987 Herb teamed up with Janet Jackson to give us the jam Diamonds. The track also featured backup vocals by Lisa Keith (we will get to her one day I am sure). Diamonds went on to be a #1 R&B and #1 Dance hit and peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100. Janet really makes this tune, but did not appear in the video. But check out some serious horn syncing by Herb! The song is a jam and I love it! Happy Weekend!
