Initially "Clyde" was the group's lead vocalist, only occasionally sharing the microphone with Lionel Richie. Eventually, Lionel became more and more featured as the lead singer, especially on the ballads. But Walter sang lead on many of The Commodores' funkiest uptempo numbers, such as "Young Girls Are My Weakness", "Brick House" and "Too Hot Ta Trot".
Among the songs Clyde wrote are "Don't You Be Worried" (The Commodores' second 45 on MoWest), "Wide Open", "(Can I) Get A Witness", "Can't Let You Tease Me", "Squeeze The Fruit", "Such A Woman", "This Love", "Been Loving You" and "Bump De La La".
Walter co-wrote "I Feel Sanctified" (with the group and Jeffrey Bowen), "Gonna Blow Your Mind" (with Milan Williams), "Slippery When Wet" (with Thomas McClary), "You Don't Know That I Know", "Let's Get Started", "Brick House", "Too Hot Ta Trot" (with the group), "I Like What You Do" (with Lionel Richie), "Gettin' It" and "All The Way Down" (with David Cochrane from the Mean Machine).
