Daily Boom 80's Throwback: Phil Collins & Phillip Bailey- 'Easy Lover'

Easy lover
She'll get a hold on you believe it
Like no other
Before you know it you'll be on your knees
She's an easy lover
She'll take your heart but you won't feel it
She's like no other
And I'm just trying to make you see
She's the kind of girl you dream of
Dream of keeping hold of
You'd better forget it
You'll never get it

I've always really liked Phil Collins duet with Phillip Bailey (of Earth, Wind & Fire), but I have to admit that I forgot how cute the video for "Easy Lover" actually is. I happened to catch it on VH1's Totally 80's while on the treadmill this morning and was genuinely amused. More than 30 years after its initial 1984 release, it's obvious to mean that Collins and Bailey had a lot of fun working together. The video is comprised of several clips of the guys trying to figure out how to perform this song together and in between the fun there are snippets of them both dressed as sharp dressed 80's men, actually getting the job done.

Aside from it being a fun way to kick off your Saturday morning, "Easy Lover" is a really great song, one that both Bailey and Collins still enjoy performing live on their own. Check out the video below!
