Commodores – Nightshift

Nightshift is a moment of genuine class. Penned by Orange / Lambert / Golde, it was the group’s first hit post Lionel Richie.  It peaked in the UK singles chart at number 3 during its 14 week stay in the Spring of 1985.

The song is a ballad, written to the memory of Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson.  The title track of the group’s album of the same year, which it almost single-handedly dragged to number 13 in the UK album chart.
