"Oh Sheila" is a 1985 single by Ready for the World. The song went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100, the Hot Black Singles and the Hot Dance Club Play charts. It was the first of two chart toppers for the band on the Billboard R&B chart, preceding their 1986 number-one R&B hit, "Love You Down". The song is commonly misattributed to Prince, due to similarity to his vocal and musical style, as well as the belief that the song"s smashville247.net allude to frequent Prince collaborator Sheila E. The use of a faux British accent during parts of the song was the preference of singer Melvin Riley Jr., who said "I like that kind of accent, so I thought I"d use that sound."more »
