Sensual Grooves

Sensual songs for romantic evenings! One of them is the brilliant ‘Slow hand’ by the Pointer Sisters. In the 1970s the girls were aiming at the R&B market and had small hits, like ‘Yes we can can’ and 'How long betcha got a chick on the side’. They became highly successful after recording ‘Fire’ (written by Bruce Springsteen) and moved more into the pop market. In the 1980s they had their biggest hits, like ‘Jump’, ‘I’m so excited’ and ‘Slow hand’, of course. Then, by the end of the decade, they were wiped away from the scene when house, hip hop and swingbeat took the place of soul and disco.

In 2004 Junior Jack used 'Dare me' from the Pointer Sisters (that originally came out in 1985) for their hit 'Stupidisco':

'Is it love you're after' by Spyder Turner is one of the sensual grooves. The song became a hit for Rose Royce:
