Repeat after me: “Oscar Winner, Lionel Richie.” His chart-topping song “Say You, Say Me” was an original song for the film White Nights and won the Oscar in 1985. I haven’t seen it, in fact, I’ve never heard of it. You can see some clips of the film in the music video below. Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines play ballet dancers trapped in Siberia (uh huh) that are first competitors, then become friends (really!). Isabella Rossellini and Helen Mirren co-star as the respective love interests.
I thought the “Let the River Run” video was 80’s cheese ball, check this doozy out. We can’t play the clip on our site. Hit “You Tube” on the screen, after you hit play.
