Spotlight Gold: The Manhattans - “Kiss and Say Goodbye”

Youngblood is Spotlighting “KISS and Say Goodbye” written by Winfred "Blue" Lovett. During an interview Lovett said, "Back then I was into listening a lot to country things. Lionel Richie jumped the gun on me, but I had been listening for three or four years. I liked a lot of things Glen Campbell was doing... and Charley Pride."

Columbia issued the full version aimed toward the R&B market, which included a mid-song rap and an edited "pop" edition without the spoken part. Lovett said, "Pop stations didn't like the rap the way I was talking, like Barry White, Isaac Hayes or Lou Rawls. They didn't like that talking in the beginning. They felt it would sell better, if it was without the rap. I was fine with that. Whatever would sell records that was fine." (Via Soul Express)
