Daily Boom 80's Throwback: Jermaine Stewart- 'The Word is Out'

Why did you have to tell them
I told you not to say a word
Why did you have to say it
We were never seen (never seen)
Now I can't believe the word is out

Today we're going to go all the way back to 1984 for our daily throwback. Jermaine Stewart had just released his very first album, post-Shalamar and the title track was also the first single. "The Word Is Out" is actually still a great dance track even if it's not Stewart's most popular. Most people will remember him first for "We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off" which hit the top of Billboard's charts a few years later in 1986.

Sadly Stewart only put out a handful of albums before his death to AIDS-related liver cancer in 1987. If you go back through his catalog of work, Stewart had some great stuff, starting with "The Word Is Out".
