FlinterFile: The Whispers- And The Beat Goes On
In 1980, The Whispers scored their first hit. Though they formed in 1964 (!), they had to wait a long time for their first hit. With a positive look on a broken relationship, they knew to get into the discos. Leon F. Sylvers III had written the song, and was said the Whispers should record the song. They knew right away they could make it a hit, but Sylvers had little hope it would succeed. However, it would be a big hit (like the Shalamar hits he produced), with a number 19 position in the US and even number 2 in the UK. Enjoy
