Song Lyric Sunday | “This is for the Lover in You” – Shalamar

Song Lyric Sunday banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “Wedding/Marry/Diamond/Ring/Cake.”

~~~~~~~~~~

Co-written by Shalamar lead singer, Howard Hewitt, and songwriter,  Dana Meyers, This is for the Lover in You is a smooth RnB ballad about a man proposing to the woman he loves.

The track was originally recorded by Shalamar and appeared on their 1980 Platinum album, Three for Love.

This is For the Lover in You  was the third single released as a single and peaked at No. 17 on the U.S. R&B chart in 1981.

The only performance video I could find is a Soul Train appearance labeled “ultra rare,”  but it’s also “ultra blurry” so I included a static video of the album cover.

Enjoy!
