Cusp Song of the Day: I Love Music

In Cusp, "I Love Music" is the third song in the Bus Stop dance sequence from Mark and Karen's first visit to the Sting on Thanksgiving 1975. The tune, by the O’Jays, entered the charts that month, peaking at number 5 pop but spending eight weeks atop the Hot Dance Club Play chart, from November 1975 into January 1976. Like the band's previous hit, "For the Love of Money," "I Love Music" still feels fresh today.
The song opens with a bongo solo, played by O'Jays fan Bill Cosby. The lyrics are about, well, loving music, "the healing force of the world."
