Oliver Nelson is a nu-disco/electronic music producer from Stockholm, Sweden. Not too long ago, he delivered a stunning rendition of the late R&B icon Luther Vandross’ “Never Too Much” single.
Luther Vandross – “Never Too Much” (Oliver Nelson Remix)
“I can’t fool myself, I don’t want nobody else to ever love me. You are my shining star, my guiding light, my love fantasy. There’s not a minute, hour, day or night that I don’t love you. You’re at the top of my list ’cause I’m always thinking of you.” – lyrics
Oliver Nelson’s modernize version of Vandross’ “Never Too Much” tune is a tad bit more up-tempo than the original version. Also, it stays true to the original rhythm but with boomier instrumentation.
Not too long ago, in 2009 to be exact, Vandross released a music video for his “Never Too Much” single. So far, the audiovisual has amassed over 20M views online via YouTube.
Luther Vandross – “Never Too Much”
“I still remember in the days when I was scared to touch you. How I spent my day, dreaming, planning how to say I love you. You must have known that I had feelings deep enough to swim in. That’s when you opened up your heart and you told me to come in.” – lyrics
‘Never Too Much’ was released in 1981 as the title track from Vandross’ album that year. The song peaked at #1 on the soul singles chart, #33 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #4 on the dance charts.
