Kashif- Help Yourself to My Love (1983)

Hey. I'm no slapper over here, but my standards are not overly high. You are welcome to help yourself to my love if you posses any (or ideally, all) of the following qualities: A Nintendo 64 and compatible Harvest Moon cartridge, a large supply of Fruit Stripe gum, a clean and functional hot tub, a really outstanding mustache, a four-poster bed, a large collection of old Sassy Magazines, and/or your name is Kashif.

Teena Marie- Lovergirl (1984)

Shout out to Teena Marie, who showed all of us petite funk-loving white girls that they, too, have the power to make records with, and periodically bang, Rick James in his prime.

Donna McGhee- It Ain't No Big Thing (Danny Krivit Edit)(1978)

After years of rigorous cutbacks on airline snacks, it really ain't no big thing if you want to pack a nice sandwich on the plane with you.
A word to the wise, however: there is a special place in hell for those that choose to bring tuna salad anywhere near the inside of enclosed mass long-haul transportation.

Kashif- Rumors (1983)

Fresh out of high school, my younger sister took a job at a liquor store. One hungover morning, she called into work and told the boss that she would need the day off, as she was grieving the loss of her sister. Little did she know, one of her co-workers was in my graduating class three years prior. I was out on the coast going to school, so I had no knowledge of the rumors floating around until years later, when I realized that people were treating me more "ghost-ish" than I deserved.
