Song Lyric Sunday | I’ve Learned to Respect the Power of Love – Stephanie Mills

SLS 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.

This week’s theme is  “School/Books/Learning.

~~~~~~~~~~

Written by Angela Winbush and René Moore, of the singing duo Rene & Angela, American R&B singer, songwriter, and actress Stephanie Mills made I Have Learned to Respect the Power of Love the second single from her 1985 self-titled album.

The song peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot Black Singles chart, and remained number one for two weeks in May 1986. I Have Learned to Respect the Power of Love was Mills’s sixteenth entry on the chart and her first number-one single. It is one of her most successful singles in the R&B markets.

FUN FACTS:

  • I Have Learned to Respect the Power of Love did not make the Billboard Hot 100.
  • The song first appeared on the self-titled album, Alton McClain & Destiny (Polydor, 1979). This album was later re-released as It Must Be Love. Alton McClain & Destiny are best known for their disco song, It Must Be Love.
  • I Have Learned to Respect the Power of Love also appeared on the Angela Winbush album, The Real Thing (1989).

I went with an still video as there was no official music video and all the live performances were extremely long and ad-libbed, and I felt didn’t do the original recording justice.

Enjoy!
