Top Songs of 1991: #12: "Because I Love You (The Postman Song)" by Stevie B.
The #12 Billboard hit of 1991 was "Because I Love You (The Postman Song)" by Stevie B. Stevie has apparently released 9 albums since 1991--go Stevie!
My favorite Stevie B. hit, by a mile, is "In Your Eyes". That is a sweet jam.
The Postman Song? Well. People were gaga for it 1991. It goes back to my theory of how the adult contemporary genre doesn't exist anymore. But in 1991, "The Postman Song" fit right into that genre. Stevie B. writes his lady a letter, in a song, and tells her exactly how he feels. And he feels that he loves her. His heart is an open door. He'll be right by her side. He wants to reassure her that she can always count on him. That isn't my interpretation of the lyrics. Those are the lyrics.
