    The Gap Band was one of the hottest funk and soul bands of the 80s, and their music has continued to resonate all these years later, with "Uncle" Charlie Wilson reaching a whole new generation of fans.

    The group had a lot of hits over the years, but amid smashes like "Early In the Morning" and "You Dropped a Bomb on Me," some folks forget the brilliant, slower track that graced their Gap Band III album and that won over a lot of soul fans. We're talking about the great "Yearning for Your Love."

    Take a listen to this live version of the song, and remember what made "Yearning for Your Love" a true Gem.
