Originally shared by Sharon Powell King
On this day: 5th August of 1986, Lionel Richie released his third solo album „Dancing on the Ceiling”. The album was originally to be titled „Say You, Say Me”, after the Academy Award-winning track of the same name, but it was renamed after Richie rewrote the album. The album was released to generally positive reviews and warm sales, peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 and moving 4 million copies. Following the album’s release Richie went on a long hiatus, releasing his first album of entirely new material ten years later.
