80s or 90s upbeat slightly jazzy/funky song stuck in my head

The song has a male lead singer. Not sure what the lyrics are, but main chorus sounds like he's saying "Give MEee LooooOOooooooove" (the capitol letters indicate where there's a stress in his voice to help convey rhythm, and there is a higher note at the beginning of the word love that is drawn out to a slightly lower note). Then there are three repeating sort of guitar-like strums and simultaneously female background vocals that repeats "uh-uh, uh-uh" or "ooh-ah, ooh-ah" with a somewhat staccato pause in between. It's an upbeat pop song but has kind of jazzy or slightly funky feel because there is kind of a stop-start beat, which seems to hint vaguely of gears or the motion of working/labor, but maybe that's a stretch. Anyway I hear it once in a blue moon in public places like thrift stores or grocery stores--not often enough to give a better description. I don't know how long it's been around, seems like one of those songs I've just always heard, and I just realized when I heard it a few weeks ago that I like it.
