Jellybean your body of work is amazing. I love all of your music. Especially love the stuff you did with Madonna and Elisa Fiorillo! Why is Madonna the only person on your dating profile. Gotta be more? Anyway - still love and remember you Jellybean from the 80`s and still listen to Sidewalk Talk and Who Found Who all the time! (:
