I hate that song so much! Sometimes When We Touch is an ALL TIME no, just no for me.
Wow, never thought Dan Hill was black either and same here as we agree on "Sometimes When We Touch", although he did sort of redeem himself with "It's a Long Road" from the 1982 Sly Stallone film First Blood that started it all for Rambo!
What makes "Sometimes When We Touch" bad is that Manny Pacquiao sings it. If your ears could take it, check You Tube Absolutely awful.
When I first heard Hervard's fave of 1983-Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" (just kidding LOL), I thought Limahl was a black woman singing. In 1985, his solo hit "Never Ending Story", he got a little help from a female vocalist by the name of Beth Anderson, who sang backing vocals, helped offset that theory a little bit even if you didn't have MTV, which I didn't at the time.
Can't believe Vehicle by The Ides Of March hasn't been mentioned yet.
As for womanly men, how about:
Laughter In The Rain, which sounds like a lesbian love affair, and I Saw The Light.
When I was younger, I thought both were by Anne Murray.
I've always thought this about "Vehicle" by Ides of March along with "Laughter in the Rain" by Neil Sedaka and "I Saw the Light" by Todd Rundgren, speaking of womanly men, Smokey Robinson on "Being With You"!
You could have told me Terri Gibbs' "Somebody's Knockin'" and "I Saw the Light" were sung by the same artist and I would've believed you. That being said, I really like "I Saw the Light"..."Somebody's Knockin'" not so much. The lyrics are the only reason I always assumed Terri was female.

I was going by the photo at the R&R charts site. Skin seems white to me but maybe that is the result of the lighting. Incidentally, Shadoe said later after playing Mariah Carey who is also listed in this thread although I thought she was half black and half white that Narada Michael Walder co-wrote and produced both songs ("I Don't Wanna Cry" and "How Can I Ease the Pain").
