1980-58: The Commodores, “Wonderland”

From their Midnight Magic album, here’s the follow-up single to their #1 song “Still.” When you follow up a huge smash like that, you’re pretty much guaranteed at least another top 40 song to add to your credentials- even if it’s not all that snazzy. Case in point- The Commodores’ “Wonderland.”

Don’t get me wrong: When it comes to the C-dores or lead singer Lionel Richie, I’m a fan. It’s just that this song doesn’t really do anything for me. But you be the judge. “Wonderland” would go on to reach #25.
#25? Again….you be the judge.

Memorable lyric: “Mr. Taxi driver, could you give us a ride and take us down to, oh, Paradise Drive.”
