012 / Suddenly by Billy Ocean, 1984

Did you know Suddenly was Billy Ocean's FIFTH album? I didn't, I thought "Caribbean Queen" was like, his first song ever... just kidding, that's a total lie. My most favorite Billy Ocean song in the entire world of Billy Ocean is "Love Is Forever", but we'll leave that for another day.

My favorite song off of Suddenly, is of course, "Suddenly" -- the album itself makes me want to break out all my colored pencils and try to achieve this amazing shading with of the blues, burnt siennas, purples, and reds.
