VIBES from the VAULT: #DennisEdwards ‘Don’t Look Any Further’ feat. #SiedahGarrett

giphy (30)

We lost a LEGEND–Dennis Edwards. Until YESTERDAY, I did not put it together that the LEAD singer of The Temptations was the same guy that sang this SONG! WHY DID I NEVER PUT TWO AND TWO TOGETHER? Dennis Edwards is the guy that sang
Don’t Look Any Further’! This song which features Siedah Garrett was written by Franne Golde, Dennis Lambert and Duane Hitchings. It peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Black Singles chart and peaked at No. 72 on the Billboard Hot 100. In the UK, the song peaked at No. 45. This song has been SAMPLED more than a dozen times from Biggie to Lil’ Wayne to gospel group Mary Mary! Let’s go back to 1984!! Oh did we forget to mention that the VISUAL for the song was called “what … might be the worst video ever”.

However, given the rudimentary style of video making utilized at the time, many believe that the video was of, at least, moderate quality. Despite its simplicity, some early video aficionados describe the video as “awesomely terrible”. Regardless of how critics view this video, most agree that it is visual accompaniment for one of the greatest soul songs of the 1980s.
