Tenderness by General Public.

Today’s song was played in the closing scenes of the 1995 movie, Clueless starring Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, and Brittany Murphy. I watched the movie earlier this afternoon. If only the singer didn’t look so creepy in this screenshot…(It was the only video I could find on You Tube.)

Tenderness was released as a single in May of 1984 from the band’s debut album, All the Rage. The lyrics are self-explanatory, a man searching for tenderness and love in his life.

The single went to #27 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and to #11 in Canada. Above is the official music video. Aside from being included on the Clueless soundtrack, it was also in the 1985 movie, Weird Science.

Coincidentally, this band was signed to the same record label as the group in my previous entry. Small world…
