By the 1980s Lionel Richie had left the Commodores to pursue a solo career. In 1983 he had a huge hit with ‘All Night Long (All Night) which hit #1 on Billboards Pop, R&B, and Adult Contemporary charts. And a then-unknown Richard Marx contributed backing vocals.
The song’s soulful stylings and Caribbean influences made it an ideal dance number and the music video captures that perfectly. Here is thee official music video for ‘All Night Long’. Enjoy!
