Yesterday we featured Salt N Pepa for Song of the Day honors because earlier this week they were inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame. Long Island is unique in that way because it is one suburban area that has produced many nationally recognized stars from all walks of entertainment, especially music, and thus is the only place of its kind that can actually support its own such Hall of Fame. Music acts such as Billy Joel, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Deborah Gibson, and many, many others have all hailed from Long Island and have been recognized as such for their accomplishments and their hometowns.
Today, we feature another 2012 LI Music Hall of Fame inductee, Taylor Dayne. Originally hailing from Baldwin, Taylor scored this, her first big hit, in 1987, and went on to score six more top ten hits in the late 80's/early 90's, including I'll Always Love You, Prove Your Love, With Every Beat of My Heart, I'll Be Your Shelter, and more. With a uniquely powerful and deep voice, Taylor was a stellar performer and though she's still around making music, it's really too bad she hasn't managed to stay in the spotlight. Ah well, we still love her, and this song!
