Don’t be surprised if this one ends up in a Slow Jam Sunday post.
Many funk bands from the 1970s and 1980s often made slow jams too. They may not have been as popular as the dance grooves on the charts, but they would prove to be quite popular on the radio as unreleased singles. The group Con Funk Shun would have their share of R&B funk hits, but they also had a number of Quiet Storm classics. “Love’s Train” may be the best and most popular of those, but this one for #RomanticTuesday has its fans. Today’s #RomanticTuesday song is “All Up To You.”
“All Up To You” never made any chart, but it resonated with fans of slow jams with the story of a couple who had to decide whether to go on together or go their separate ways. The male in the relationship leaves the decision to his mate, noting that “the choice is yours what we’re gonna do.” He’s waiting from a word from his lady as he’s in her control.
Written by band members Karl Fuller and Felton Pilate, it highlights the ability of the band to handle the slower tempos as easily as they could their uptempo funky songs (“Ffun,” “Shake And Dance With Me,” and “Got To Be Enough” among others). Take a listen and see for yourself. I’ve also added the lyrics to this post.
I hope you enjoy “All Up To You,” and thanks for reading and listening.
