Appearing on the Gap Band’s 1982 Gap Band V LP, ”Outstanding” surpassed its album mate, the iconographic ”You Dropped a Bomb on Me” when it shot to the very top of the R&B charts in August, 1983. And, similarly unlike its counterpart, ”Outstanding” is a far less frenetic groove, radiating slick vibes wrapped in a cool mid-tempo beat. A loaded love song, the repeated “you blow my mind, I’m satisfied” is a double entrended double dip. Sweet on one hand, and incredibly sexy on the other, it’s no wonder this song was a success. Indeed, ”Outstanding” made such a mark among musicians that it has become a favorite for sampling, with elements appearing in songs by Ice Cube, R Kelly, Blackstreet and Redman among others. Seldom has a song been so aptly named.
