Cause I love you is still amazing and special. It is one of the songs I remember most from my early childhood. My pops stayed riding in boat-like cars. A light blue Monte Carlo is the one I remember most. And I would ride with him when he'd go get his board from his gambling homeboy (before Texas had them lottos). And Lenny was almost a lock to come on at some point.

I loved and love that damn song. It's such a monsterous vocal if nothing else. And the pimpin ass talk-singing breakdown? Cmon...it's special and elite.

It's crazy to think he could make that song and still basically get 'thrown away' during the 80s like so many others. Dude was working at a community center? Wow.
