THE WHISPERS "AND THE BEAT GOES ON"
by Mark Nobes, chief editor
The Whispers obtained all of their British hit singles during the 80s, and they featured a smooth mix of disco, funk, R&B and soul. The band formed in California in 1963, but they never achieved major chart success in their home country or the UK until 1980.
"IT'S A LOVE THING" (1981)
It's A Love Thing reached #9 in the UK (#28 US) in March 1981. It was the follow-up single to My Girl
which had reached #26 in the UK singles charts in 1980.
