‘Who’s Right, Who’s Wrong?’

east-van-disco

Not many fans may know that Michael performed background vocals on Kenny Loggins’ song ‘Who’s Right Who’s Wrong,’ taken from Kenny Loggins’ 1979 album, ‘Keep The Fire.’

This is a rare song which many fans will enjoy, and deserves recognition.

Kenny Loggins performed as a member of ‘USA for Africa’ on the famine-relief fundraising single ‘We Are the World,’ written by Michael and Lionel Richie.

He also wrote hit songs for films such as ‘Footloose’ and Top Gun,’ earning the title, “King of the Movie Soundtrack”. This led to Kenny Loggins performing ‘Footloose’ at the Philadelphia leg of the July 13, 1985 ‘Live Aid’ famine relief dual-venue charity concert and global television broadcast.

Here are the lyrics to the song,

“I’ve grown tired of fighting

Whether you’re right or wrong

Whether I’m weak or strong in your eyes

‘Cause this is a lonely feeling

Watching you turn away

Why does it have to be this way?

 

On and on tonight

You’ve made a point of being right

Making this a game instead of love

You should know

Where this goes

 

Someone’s heart will surely be broken

Before too long

If we keep on playing this game

Of right or wrong

 

CHORUS

Who’s Right, Who’s Wrong

When love is gone?

Who’s right or wrong — false or true

Never used to matter to you.

 

You’re almost crying

Saying “I’ve gotta run”

Easier said than done

Tell me why

I want to know what you’re hiding

Turn around and look at me

I’ve never been this hard to see before

 

If we’d only come together

For a moment here tonight

You could hold me tight

And ease your troubled mind

You should know

Where this goes

Someone’s heart will surely be broken

Before too long,

If we keep on playing this game

Of right or wrong.

 

Right or wrong, lady

Right or wrong, baby

I’m right, you’re wrong lady

You’re right, I’m wrong, baby

 

Talkin’ about who’s right or wrong

It never really matters

when your love is gone

Sayin’ it out

This right is wrong

If all our lovin’ is gone.”
