The Commodores Song List
Lionel Richie, Milan Williams, Ronald LePread, Walter "Clyde" Orange, William King, and Thomas McClary may have selected the name for their band randomly, but there was nothing random about the mix of talent that would become the Commodores.
After gaining popularity in their hometown areas of Tuskegee, Montgomery, and Birmingham, Alabama, the Commodores began to secure shows in New York City. A performance one night to a sold-out audience resulted in a two-week booking, and in 1971 the Commodores were called in for an audition.
Only after being selected for an upcoming tour did the Commodores realize they would be heading out on the road with the Jackson 5. Two and a half years later, the Commodores had built a loyal following and solidified a final deal with Motown.
"Machine Gun" was the first release by the Commodores. The single reached the top ten and stayed there for fifteen weeks. The Commodores followed with "I Feel Sanctified," and then after that, with "Slippery When Wet."
A string of Commodores hits followed in 1976, including "Just to Be Close to You," "Fancy Dancer," and "Easy." But "Brickhouse" would become the group's anthem, only to be followed by "Three Times a Lady," one of the group's last hits with Lionel Richie as a member.
After Lionel Richie left the Commodores, the group brought J.D. Nicholas into the fold and the result was the Commodores' biggest hit. "Nightshift" was released in 1985, and the nostalgic piece, a tribute to Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson, won the Commodores their only Grammy.
The Commodores have continued on throughout the decades. Although they left Motown in 1986, the Commodores continue to tour and perform, playing theaters, festivals, and arenas around the world, including opening at the Trump and Hard Rock casinos.
