Song Lyric Sunday | “On the Wings of Love” – Jeffrey Osborne

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  Bird/Fly/Sky/Wing.


After he departed from R&B group L.T.D. in 1980, legal issues prevented Jeffrey Osborne from signing his solo deal with A&M for a whole year.

After signing with A&M as a solo artist, Osborne began work on his self-titled debut album, releasing it in mid-1982. The first single, On the Wings of Love, went all the way to #29 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, #13 R&B, and #7 Adult Contemporary.


  • On the Wings of Love hit #1 on the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart.
  •  In the UK, the song became the greatest hit of Osborne’s career.
  • Osborne’s studio musicians included the talents of George Duke, Ron Kersey, Michael Sembello, Louis Johnson, Larry Graham and Sheila E., just to name a few.

The video below is from a 1984 performance on the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon.
