The motion picture, Graffiti Bridge had some nice cuts that sometimes gets overlooked due to the film itself. Release It is definitely one of my Time favorites but the other cut would be Love Machine.  Now some people my feel indifferent towards this song and you’re entitled to that opinion however I feel differently. Pulsating with a vibrant mix of funk, dance and a catchy chorus, you can easily neglect the erotic lyricism of this tune. What completely lures me in is the “20 questions” banter between Morris Day, Ingrid Chavez, and Jerome Benton. The conversation starts off with a “tongue-in-cheek” innocence but grows in a rapid fire beginning to unravel certain inhibitions. A nice twist of clever and sexy.

Here is The Original 7ven (formerly The Time) with Love Machine.
