Second Listen: "Fire and Desire" (Rick James & Teena Marie)
"Fire and Desire" by Rick James and Teena Marie is easily one of my top ten duets in music history. Besides the vocals being off the charts, the passion between these two can be felt even through the mechanical reproduction of their recorded duet.
Arranged, composed, and written by James, "Fire and Desire" is one of those cuts from Rick's 1981 concept album "Street Songs" that still lives on classic Soul radio. Take a (hopefully) second listen to "Fire and Desire" below and Enjoy!
