New Found Glory's "Endless Love" for Lionel

9/15/2006 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pop-punk band New Found Glory and adult contemporary icon Lionel Richie may not have much in common musically, but they obviously share a likeness in album titles.
New Found Glory and Lionel Richie
On Tuesday, Lionel's latest album, "Coming Home", was released. New Found Glory's new CD hits stores on September 19, and just so happens to also be called "Coming Home."

Coincidence? Perhaps. But New Found Glory has reached out to Richie by issuing an "open letter to Nicole's Dad" to celebrate their "pure genius" fluke.

The tongue-in-cheek press release also states that while it may be too late for Lionel to change the album's title, they "expect a call before your next album comes out." If not, New Found Glory says they may have to name their next CD "Dancing on the Ceiling" and have it feature "original punk rock songs as 'Say You, Say Me' & 'All Night Long.'" Which, for you non-Lionel Richie fans out there, are the titles of some of Lionel's biggest hits from the 80s.

While there's no way to tell which artist came up with the title first, perhaps the young'uns in New Found Glory should check out the oldies section at Blockbuster and pick up a copy of the 1978 Oscar-winning film starring Jane Fonda which, what do you know, is also called "Coming Home." Hello!

We, are not amused.    

Harry Sez: "Another song with the title 'Comin' Home' is on the Woodstock soundtrack by a British group called "Ten Years After" not that anyone gives a ripe, wet fart!

Lionel adopted Nicole because her biological parents had drug issues.

Nicole's biological father is Sheila E.'s brother, Peter Micheal Escovedo. Escovedo was the musical director on The Wayne Brady Show. They actually had an on-air reunion on his show a few years ago.

Escovedo is Mexican-American making Nicole latina. Altho she probably has the world tricked into thinking she is Anglo.
