When it comes to the mysterious ways of love, Lionel Richie knows best. You can just submit yourself to his smooth, soulful sounds and be swept away into the land of amour, because he knows everything. Since the iconic singer (and facial hair enthusiast) is turning 65 years old today, we have decided to declare our endless love for him… Anyone in for a dance on the ceiling? See what we did there?

Richie first waltzed into our hearts as the lead singer of the Commodores and then cemented himself into our souls with his solo career that provided the soundtrack to our love lives for all eternity. Who didn’t cry themselves to sleep tightly embracing the Can’t Slow Down record and softly whispering the lyrics of “Stuck on You” to the night, after a particularly brutal breakup in high school? Wait, was that just us?

So, without further ado, we shall celebrate the career of this wonderful singer with the countdown of our favourite songs, which got us through some tough times. You’re welcome.
