Current Hit:  “That’s What I Want”  by Lil’ Nas X

Linked to:  “I Want Your Love” by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers/1979

Because:  Desire, and the quest for love, is, was, and always will be a music constant, in all its forms and permutations.  Sometimes it’s elegant and sophisticated, sometimes it’s rough and rowdy; in this case, Lil Nas’s brash in-your-face delivery obscures his plea:  “I want someone to love me.”

“That’s What I Want”  is fast moving and up-tempo,with a sing-song delivery.
