Robert Palmer.

Honestly, I don't know much about the late Robert Palmer (19 January 1949 – 26 September 2003), but Addicted To Love, Simply Irresistible and She Makes My Day are some of my favourite songs from the 80s. It helps that the first two aforementioned songs' music video features the infamous, much parodied "conservatively sexy" models as back up for Palmer. The heavily makeup, mannequin like models are supposedly based after the artworks by Patrict Nagel, the late art icon whose works are akin to Art Deco. All I know is, if I were to have a bevy of those models as backup, I would sing those songs facing them instead of the audience.
