Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “search.” 

 ~~~~~
Like Adele in my Song Lyric Sunday post on Nesie’s Place, 80’s pop queen, Jody Watley, is also searching, but not for a clone… for a new love!
Looking For a New Love is totally trippy, bouncy 80’s. Watley, a former featured dancer on Soul Train, and a member of the group, Shalamar, took the single all the way to number two on the BillBoard Hot 100 and number 1 on the R & B chart. The song is ranked as number sixteen for 1987 and was nominated in 1988 for the Grammy for Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female. It didn’t win, but it did help Watley take home the Grammy for Best new Artist.
Fun Fact:  In the song Looking For a New Love, Jody kicks her old lover to the curb, saying, Hasta la vista, baby! The phrase became an instant hit on answering machines, but would become a part of pop culture when actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke the words in the 1991 film Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Fun Fact: Jody Watley is the goddaughter of music legend, Jackie Wilson.

Enjoy!
