Sheila E. – "The Glamorous Life" (The Glamorous Life, Warner Bros. 1984)

STILL. BRILLIANT.
Still one of my favorite singles EVER. (I called it #16 all-time in this post last November, but these days it’s more like top 10.)
Still has one of my favorite lyrical phrases ever in “if-you-have-to-ask-you-can’t-afford-it lingerie.”
Still has one of my favorite lyrics ever in “Boys with small talk/and small minds/really don’t impress me in bed.”
Still features some of the finest percussion work in a top-10 pop single.
Still quite possibly the finest musical moment 1984 had to offer, its chief competition being her mentor’s “I Would Die 4 U.”
OMG I LOVE YOU SHEILA E.
