SMJ's #TBT - "What You Won't Do For Love" - Bobby Caldwell
Bobby Caldwell is best known for his 1978 love song "What You Won't Do For Love" that has proven to be a classic soul music track. It's also a favorite among Hip-Hop and R&B Artist (and other genres) to sample.
Our 'catchiest' part of the song is when Bobby belts out the chorus "What you won't do.. do for love.. you've tried everything, but you won't give up..... I came back to let you know.....I got a thing for you, and I can't let go..." Sounds like Bobby had it bad for the person this song was written about.
SMJ Fact: "What You Won't Do For Love" has been covered by several artist, including Phyllis Hyman, Boyz II Men, Intro, Peabo Bryson, Natalie Cole, and sampled by 2Pac (Do For Love), Aaliyah (Age Ain't Nuthin' but a Number), and Mary J. Blige (Love No Limit).
