The Control album dropped 35 years ago in February 1986 and I was 13. I don’t know about you, but that album changed my life. The record producers who made her famous, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are releasing their own album, dropping on Friday. What are your favorite songs from the album: Nasty Boy, Pleasure Principle, Let’s Wait A While? I loved them all! And who else thought they were Janet Jackson dancing in the mirror? 🖐️LOL #OldSchool #40AndOver #the80s #the40andoverproject #GirlPower
It’s #Cookout season. You know what that means right? Alot of #OldSchool dance music to set the mood. Before I Let Go, by Frankie Beverly, has got to be one of everyone’s all time favorites for family reunions and weddings. Keep this one on blast and you will be sure to have a successful Que (BBQ that is and guarantee that somebody’s auntie will break out into a line dance after a mean game of Bid Whist on the card table! And we can’t leave out the Hip Hop classic, Summertime, by Will Smith because the title says it all! This should be in heavy rotation in your “CD player”, lol, or on your playlist, either way, it’s the jam! Enjoy!
Can you believe it’s been 30 years since the Boyz II Men, Motown Philly album dropped? That would have been 1991. OMG! If you are 40 and over, then you definitely remember jamming out to this! What’s your favorite song? Please share!
Tuesday was #WorldAIDSDay and to mark this week’s #ThrowbackThursday, I thought I would highlight the 1985 classic, #ThatsWhatFriendsAreFor, featuring Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder, and Elton John and it raised over $3 million for AIDS research. Fun Fact: Did you know the song was originally recorded in 1982 by Rod Stewart for the soundtrack to the movie Night shift? Really? This version was an awesome collaboration. Thank you “Dionne and Friends” #the40andoverproject #40AndOver #OldSchool #the80s #music #musicvideos
