    1986 R&B SONG

    Jeffrey E. Cohen & Narada Michael Walden – “Freeway of Love” (Aretha Franklin) – WINNER
    David Foster, Tom Keane, & Cynthia Weil for “Through the Fire” (Chaka Khan)
    LaLa for “You Give Good Love” (Whitney Houston)
    Sharon Robinson, Jon Gilutin, & Bunny Hull for “New Attitude” (Patti LaBelle)
    Walter Orange, Dennis Lambert, & Franne Golde for “Nightshift” (The Commodores)

    This is a strong set of nominees and I agree that Freeway of Love deserved this award.

    4/5 of these contenders would’ve been a worthy winner.

    “Through the Fire”, “You Give Good Love”, “New Attitude”, & “Freeway of Love” are classics!

    “Through the Fire” would’ve been a great winner too

    I was literally looking at the Grammy wikipedia and remarking how much I loved the R&B nominees from this year.

    Female R&B Vocal for this year was Aretha for Freeway of Love (who won), Chaka for Through the Fire, Patti for New Attitude, Whitney for You Give Good Love, and Teena Marie for Lovergirl. Awesome year!

    1996 Grammy Awards

    1. Stevie Wonder, “For Your Love” – WINNER
    2. TLC, “Red Light Special”
    3. Vanessa Williams, “You Can’t Run”
    4. D’Angelo, “Brown Sugar”
    5. TLC, “Creep”

    Babyface should have won for writing “Red Light Special”. That song is 🔥

    3 of these are classic R&B songs, but of course they gave it to a random song by a legend. Ugh.

    The very first line-up in 1969 had “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” (winner), “Chain of Fools,” and “I Wish it Would Rain.” Wow, what classics!

    The 1972 line-up was stacked – “Ain’t No Sunshine” (winner), “If I Were Your Woman,” “Never Can Say Goodbye,” “Mr Big Stuff,” and “Smiling Faces Sometimes.”

    Michael Jackson had 3 of 5 nominees in the Thriller era and still managed to win, so that’s impressive as he could have split votes.

    1998 had another amazing group with “I Believe I Can Fly” (winner), “On & On,” “Honey,” “No Diggity,” and “Stomp.” So solid.
