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 “listen.” 


Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart) is a soul song written by Thom Bell and Linda Creed that was originally recorded by the Philadelphia soul group the Stylistics.

An R&B ballad, it was the first track from their 1971 debut self-titled album (and first major hit) and was released as a single in 1971 and reached #39 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. In addition, it also climbed to #6 in the Billboard R&B chart.

Motown stars Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross released their version of the same song on their duet album in 1974 as a UK-only single and that version also is part of the 2001 film, Bridget Jones’ Diary.
