Rest in Peace George Michael - 25 Dec 2016, 10:22 pm

Wow, another great music artist has passed away.  Found out a few hours ago that singer George Michael passed away at his home in England.

George Michael, the British bubble-gum teen idol turned international pop star known for his flamboyant style and sexually provocative lyrics, died on Christmas in England.

He was 53. A publicist reported the death but provided no cause.

Michael, whose real name was Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, first stepped into the global spotlight in the early ’80s as a member of Wham!, a duo whose brand of blue-eyed soul produced a series of lively hits, including “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,” “Careless Whisper” and the enduring holiday ballad “Last Christmas.”

I’ve been a fan of George Michael since his Wham days.  One of my favorite Wham songs is Everything She Wants.

Check out Hand to Mouth from his cd/album Faith.

Rest in Peace George Michael.

Rest in Peace Prince - 21 Apr 2016, 10:14 pm

Prince Rogers Nelson passed away today.

Prince15

Prince, the songwriter, singer, producer, one-man studio band and consummate showman, died on Thursday at his home, Paisley Park, in Chanhassen, Minn. He was 57.

His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, confirmed his death but did not report a cause. In a statement, the Carver County sheriff, Jim Olson, said that deputies responded to an emergency call at 9:43 a.m. “When deputies and medical personnel arrived,” he said, “they found an unresponsive adult male in the elevator. Emergency medical workers attempted to provide lifesaving CPR, but were unable to revive the victim. He was pronounced deceased at 10:07 a.m.”

I’m still in shock.  I was at work when I found out his death.  Soon as a read about his death I started playing his music on my ipod.

I’ve been a fan of Prince since Soft and Wet was released back in 1978.  That song along with Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad and I Wanna Be Your Lover started my love for all things Prince.  In 1982 I bought the 1999 album and it was on.  I wore that album out.  I still have it.

1999

Rest in Peace Prince.

Earth Wind and Fire has always been my all time favorite band.  They just don’t make music like EW&F music today.  This is why I cherish my music collection.  So many great music legends such as Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Teena Marie, Donna Summer, Natalie Cole, David Bowie and now Maurice White passing away but their music lives on.

Check out one of my favorite Earth Wind and Fire songs All About Love. This song was written by Maurice White and Larry Dunn.  All About Love is from the That’s The Way of The World album/cd.

Music Monday- Tracie Spencer - 1 Feb 2016, 9:47 pm

I was checking out some music today in Amazon and found a music artist I hadn’t heard about in a long time. Whatever happened to Tracie Spencer?

TV One’s Unsung needs to do an episode with her.

She had some pretty good music back in the day. One of my favorite Tracie Spencer songs is This House. This House is from her Make The Difference cd.

Happy birthday to Aaliyah - 16 Jan 2016, 8:58 pm

Today would have been the 37th birthday of singer Aaliyah Haughton.  Aaliyah died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001. Can’t believe it’s been almost 15 years since her death.

Aaliyah’s 3 studio cds include Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number, One In A Million and Aaliyah. One of my favorite Aaliyah songs is Hot Like Fire from her One In A Million cd.

Rest in Peace Aaliyah.

Happy birthday Sade Adu - 16 Jan 2016, 7:57 pm

Today is the 57th birthday of British singer, songwriter and producer Sade Adu.

SadeAdu16

I’ve been a fan of Sade’s since the 1980’s when Diamond Life was released. The band Sade have released six studio albums/cds including Diamond Life, Promise, Stronger Than Pride, Lovers Rock, Love Deluxe and Soldier of Love.

Sade has so many great songs that it’s difficult to say which one is my favorite.  But one of my favorites was never released as a single.  Maureen is from her Promise album/cd.  Love this song.

Will Sade ever release a new cd? Who knows. Just glad I own all of her music. Check out Soldier of Love from her last cd Soldier of Love which was released in 2010.  Yes six years since her last cd.

Happy New Year - 1 Jan 2016, 11:17 pm

Happy New Year!!!  Hope everyone has a great 2016.

This Christmas - 25 Dec 2015, 10:42 pm

Christmas isn’t Christmas if I don’t hear one of my favorite Christmas songs. This Christmas by the late Donny Hathaway is an all time classic.
