Bee’s prompt for today is one she got from Jim: "a love song about finding love in an unexpected place." This might not be exactly what he had in mind, but seeing as how it’s a great song for slow dancin’ and a taste of ’70’s soul, I chose it anyway. "Love On A Two-Way Street" was written by Sylvia Robinson, Lezli Valentine, and Bert Keyes and sung by Ms. Valentine, who had been signed to All Platinum Records, a label owned by Ms. Robinson and her husband Joe. It was then recorded by The Moments, a band signed to Stang Records, a subsidiary of All Platinum, as a filler for their 1968 album, Not on the Outside, But on the Inside, Strong!. The Robinsons chose to release The Moments’ recording in 1970, and it became one of the big hits of the year, spending five weeks at #1 on the Soul chart and #3 on the Hot 100. It was ranked #25 for the year and received a Gold record for sales in excess of one million.

A very nice song. I thought of Paradise by the Dashboard Light.
That would be good, too, I think.
