That's What Friends Are For

Music by Burt Bacharach, Lyrics by Hal David

Originally Performed by Dionne Warwick and Friends

A one-off collaboration headed by Dionne Warwick and featuring Gladys Knight, Elton John, and Stevie Wonder, the latter three of whom had previously reached the Hot 100's top 40 with his/her own song about part-time loving, released as a charity single in the United Kingdom and the United States in 1985, it was recorded as a benefit for American Foundation for AIDS Research, and raised over US$3 million for that cause. The song peaked at number one for three weeks on the soul chart and for four weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1986 - becoming the final US number one for all but John - and became Billboard's number one single of 1986. In the U.S., it was certified Gold on January 15, 1986 by the RIAA.

Octappella : The Voice : 00  1 CD

Octappella : The Voice

The eight young male members of Octappella, in the first year and a half since they got together, have worked to establish, of course, their own group character and image, but most of all their uniqueness as a group specializing in vocal instrumentation and complex, tight harmonies. Their first CD, "Motion,"and now "The Voice"are proof of how much they have succeeded. There are 14 surprising, harmonic gems on "The Voice,"covers of: "Make Me Lose Control,""Time of Your Life,""Earth Angel/Silhouettes,""Light In Your Eyes,""Greatest American Hero,""That Lonesome Road,""Oh, L'Amour,""Lobster,""Kiss The Girl,""Wildflowers,""Grow Old With Me,""That's What Friends Are For,"the title tune and "Trashin' The Camp."In the areas of artistic interpretation, vocal ability, arrangements and performance personality, Octappella is pushing the a cappella envelope. Listen to "The Voice"and see if you don't agree with us that these eight guys are going places-fast!

Songlist: Make Me Lose Control, Time Of Your Life, Earth Angel / Silhouettes, Light In Your Eyes, Greatest American Hero, That Lonesome Road, Oh L'Amour, Lobster, Kiss The Girl, Wildflowers, Grow Old With Me, That's What Friends Are For, The Voice, Trashin' The Camp
