My Love Affair with Oldie Goldies….(New girl with an Old Soul)
I have always loved listening to Old School music. I can remember being about 5 years old (this would be 1992)…and every Saturday my mama had us cleaning the house inside and out. She played everything from Anita baker to Whitney Houston, Jeffery Osborne, LTD, Frankie Beverly and Maze, The Spinners, Al Wilson, Teddy Pendergrass, Barry White Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes, The Stylistics,….the list goes on and on…
Back then I couldn’t stand to hear it, but subconsciously have memorized the lyrics to almost every single song.
Music created back in the 70’s and 80’s and even early 90s have so much more meaning than what is available today. Back then the words had so much depth.
I’ve always wished I was born in a different generation so I could’ve experienced the basement parties, the slow dances, and the overall feel good vibe that our parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents had while growing up.
Our music industry has drastically changed over the years; it’s expected because with evolution change is inevitable. However with the new genre I don’t feel as emotionally connected to “new school” as I do to my oldie goldies.
Here is a list of my favorite old school songs:
- Show and Tell – Al Wilson
- Only human – Jeffrey Osborne
- Could it be I’m Falling in Love – The Spinners
- Stairway to Heaven – O’jays
- Sideshow – The Blue Notes
- We’ve Only Just Begun – Glenn Jones
- It Don’t Hurt Now – Teddy Pendergrass
- When Somebody Loves You Back – Teddy Pendergrass
- Just the Lonely Talking Again- Whitney Houston
- Body and Soul – Anita Baker
