Bill Anderson, "I Can't Wait Any Longer"
Whispering Bill doing disco? Indeed he does. Anderson may be known for his country bona fides, but the Country Music Hall of Famer embraced steamy disco in this 1978 Top 5 country hit. A single off his 1978 album Love and Other Sad Stories, "I Can't Wait Any Longer" found Anderson cooing – in a whisper, naturally – "I can't wait any longer for our bodies to touch, for our souls to touch." The racy intonations paired well with the thumping bass, which took the song out of the Opry and onto the dance floor. B.M.
