this part of the song itsn't an african dialect. someday, a person told me that is not. that is in Spanish!!  "Tan-bonito-es-el-demonio" ... and that means "How pretty is the demon (devil)" :-S ...i know spanish and really sounds like this!

Point taken. However, i don't see any relation about the prettiness of the demon to a song about partying all night and having fun. And i don't think Lionel Richie, being a wholesome kind of recording artist, would want that explicit translation to be included in this song. He's just not like that in my opinion. Thanks.

Although born in the mid-60's, i learned to love music dating back to the 50's and specifically during the mid-70's and late 80's up to early 90's, where my love for music reached its zenith. Knowledgeable and can answer questions relating to 70s and 80s music...from mainstream to somewhat obscure or less-popular ones. I'm not much into OPM. Used to listen to American Top 40 hosted by Casey Kasem every week.


Mostly by listening to radio and quite a lot of background research on artists. Huge collection of 45's and LPs from mid-70's to 80's. I find music very therapeutic. Watches game shows about music and plays musical trivia stuff. Hangs around in DJ's booth. Buys old and rare music albums. Collects mp3 music of different genres.
