Inspired by his own Caribbean vacations, Lionel Richie channeled the reggae/calypso beat everyone danced to there. To offer a worldly feel, he threw in Caribbean, Swahili and Spanish words. And where he couldn't find the right international words, he simply created his own ("Tambo liteh sette mo-jah! Yo! Jambo jambo!"). In a strange twist, Iraqi residents were jamming in the streets to this song the night U.S. tanks rolled into Baghdad in 2003. "The answer is, I'm huge -- huge in the Arab world," said Richie, who opposed the war. "The answer as to why is, I don't have the slightest idea."
