AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Eugene Wilde
Song:Gotta Get You Home Tonight
Album:The Best Of Eugene Wilde
Smooth voiced R & B singer songwriter Eugene Wilde topped the R & B charts with the 1984 bedroom classic Gotta Get You Home Tonight. Unfortunately, his record label went out of business and he had little success recording elsewhere. But he continued to have success as a songwriter. He was born Ronald Eugene Broomfield Dec. 6, 1960 in West Palm Beach, FL and grew up in Miami. He was part of the family group La Voyage with older brother Al Broomfield and sister Dee Dee Wilde. They were also known as Tight Connection and Simplicious. He also recorded with Today, Tomorrow, Forever on Curtom Records in 1979. His manager got him to change his name to Eugene Wilde. Wilde joined Philly World Records in 1984 and topped the R & B charts with Gotta Get You Home Tonight after friends in the music business convinced him it was as good as Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing. Wilde wrote the song with McKinley Horton who was a member of the Philly World group Cashmere. Wilde had some other R & B hits and you can get them all on this comp. He also appeared in the 1985 film Rappin' singing First Love Never Dies with Joanne Gardner. By 1986, Philly World closed and Wilde signed with MCA Records. He recorded two unsuccessful albums there. In the 90s, Wilde wrote songs for The Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and Victoria Beckham. Lately Wilde has been recording with the Danish production team Cool Million and he released the CD Get Comfortable last year. Here's the video for Gotta Get You Home Tonight by Eugene Wilde.
