Glenn Jones

We've Only Just Begun (The Romance Is Not Over)

Song Review by

After scoring a Top 30 R&B hit with the danceable "I Am Somebody," Glenn Jones shifted gears and began concentrating on singing ballads. The move proved to be right, with the singer racking up several high-charting slow jams, beginning with the number three R&B smash "Show Me," "Bring Back the Love" (Top 18 R&B), "Giving Myself to You" (Top 18 R&B), and including his duet with Dionne Warwick on the title theme of ABC TV series Finder of Lost Loves starring Tony Franciosa. "We've Only Just Begun (The Romance Is Not Over)" proved to be another winner for Jones, with the singer applying his gospel-honed vocals to a great song that paints an optimistic picture of a budding romance. "We've Only Just Begun (The Romance Is Not Over)" hit number two R&B and number 66 pop in summer 1987. It was included on the Glen Jones LP, which peaked at number 16 R&B and number 94 pop.
