The Story Behind “Zoom”

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

I’ve always liked the song “Zoom” by the Commodores and when it was released in ’77 it was played to death on radio but somehow this is one of those songs that could never get played too much.  You can sense there is a special story behind the lyrics by the way Lionel Richie carries the lead vocals.

Commodores bass guitarist and trumpeter Ronald LaPread explained in the book Chicken Soup For the Soul: The Story Behind The Song the sad and poignant tale that inspired this tune.
