Format 7" single
"Take It From Me" is a 1987 single released by The Commodores from their 1986 album United released by Polydor Records.
The song was a Top 40 hit on the R&B charts in the United States
This group is best known for their ballads according to record sales for such songs as "Easy" and "Three Times a Lady", but, for the most part, the group recorded funky, driven dance-floor hits which include "Brick House", "The Bump", "Fancy Dancer", and "Too Hot ta Trot".
The Commodores originally came together from two former groups the Mystics and the Jays, but wanted to change the name. To choose a new name William "WAK" King opened a dictionary and randomly picked a word. "We lucked out," he remarked with a laugh when telling this story to People magazine. "We almost became The Commodes!".
