LoverGirl and Lead Me On is still two of my all time favorites. I don't dance anymore (for a few decades, now) , but I still listen to her. It was a good time. Crazy good time and crazy good memories. I didn't know she had such a long career. I thought she was a one hit wonder. Thank you, and God bless.
