The Diana Ross Videos: Part 4: Love Hangover

Love Hangover. One of the funkiest riffs in music history. The tune was written by Pamela Sawyer and Marilyn McLeod and originally recorded by Sylvester. It was also recorded and released at the same time as the Ross version by The Fifth Dimension. Apparently Ross and her producer got drunk before recording the song in order to loosen her up. This was Diana's first foray into disco, releasing the song in 1976. It went strait to number one on every chart. This version is from the TV show Midnight Special. Once again Diana brings audience members on stage, this time making fun of the guy after she makes him sing. Diana's personality really shines through in this clip. Amazing stuff.
