For Valentine’s Day 2021, I recorded the upbeat, positive 80s love song, “Let’s Hear It For The Boy”, by Deniece Williams. There’s so much about this song that just gets me smiling all throughout. It’s so cheerful and such a celebration of men. There’s no song more perfect for Valentines.
Story Behind The Song
Why Cover This Song?
I grew up with this song. When the song was a massive hit, originally, I heard it a lot on the radio. Its lyrics are such a good description of the infatuation phase. The boy can’t do no wrong. In this time, with the COVID pandemic, I just think it’s nice to remind people of the positive side of love.
Deniece Williams still performs to this day and went on to win 4 Grammys for her vocal abilities. There’s no way I could do this song justice, like she can, but we all need goals.
BTW, the video is only viewable from a few selected countries. Sorry, if you can’t view it. Please check out one of my other cover songs.
