Lionel Richie is proud his romantic tracks have become timeless hits.
The 64-year-old singer worried about becoming a ''laughing stock'' with some of his material from 70s and 80s, and never expected his songs to still be relevant and such big wedding hits.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Any year you sing 'Endless Love', it works.
''I do big business in weddings, between 'Truly', 'Endless Love' and 'Three Times A Lady'. I mean, I have the words 'I love you' sewn up.
''I wasn't really conscious of the songs being so timeless when I wrote them.
''Right in the middle of 'Three Times A Lady', disco was happening so I was afraid if it was ever going to work. Lasting forever? I wasn't worried about that, because I thought I was in danger of being the laughing stock of the music business.''
Lionel released an album of country versions of his tracks for his last album, vows to return to his R&B roots on the next, and has been stockpiling ideas ready for recording.
He explained: ''I needed to fill up the well before going back to writing songs, I had to have some more life experiences. So now that it's been five years of life-changing experiences, you see things differently.
''I'm a granddaddy, and there's some songs I want to write about that. I have to dig into my soul to write about these things.''
