  1. Sadly (or not so sadly), I knew all but one of those songs. I think I’ve said before that I grew up listening to that type of music. I’m generally stumped by the black artists. I’m loving this mix though. Jamming at 1:11AM.

  2. Ahhh…you guys put my song on there (REO Speedwagon)…I did a whole post about that song a few months back. Annnnnnnd some Taylor Dayne. I don’t know why, but I love that song. Sure, working at a black organization and rocking these songs all day will draw a few raised eyebrows, but who cares? Rock them I will. LOL
    Go Yolie! Go EJ! You got the white stuff today…LOL

  3. Every one! #8, #14 and #18 were/are favorites of mine. It wasn’t until later that I realized that “Every Breath” is the anthem of stalkers. 🙂

  4. Im sooooooooooooo mad I can’t enjoy this throughout my day! Boooooo! but I’ll be sure to log on from home tonight!
    See you on Saturday!

  5. OMG! I remember all of these! My favorites are 2-10 and 12-19. That about covers ’em all. LOL
    Thanks for the OSW!

  7. This mix makes me want to flip my hair and feather my bangs…ah the memories, good times. Good stuff.

  8. Man i was gonna start trippin’ on you about this list, until i realized i own more than half of these songs… and probably want the rest!
    Man, I use to rock that Billy Bera joint.
    Once again, you brought the hotness… from the other side!!!

  9. this osw is total hotness… wow – it’s really taking me back to… to… high hair… big shirts with big fat belts cinching them at the waist. i had these lil boots w/fringes ~ you couldn’t tell me i wasn’t cute! LOL hmmm… it’s making me feel OLD now that i think about it. (i guess that’s what old school wednesday is all about huh?! LOL)

  10. And to think, all I had to do was revoke my own black card to do this. LMAO Once again, EJ, thanks, it was an honor to do this.

  11. Ah, how many times have I heard At This Moment. It used to be a staple on Family Ties.
    Take My Breath Away reminded me instantly of that love scene in Top Gun when Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis kissed and left that long spit trail from lip to lip. LOL!!

  12. I remember every.single.one of these…Total Eclipse was my song…
    So, you gonna have an extra suitcase for all of those dubs you have to bring with you?
    Thanks for being the first to make me feel better.
    see ya soon!

  13. Man, we had a cool exchange the other day and you kept it real gully dawg. Just keep that hot ish coming. The moon man got things on lock. You know how you do man. keep me in the old school.I like it there!

  14. Black, White, Hispanic….good music is good music. That George Michael – One More Try was my joint back in the day.

  15. “Once upon a time, there was light in my life, but now there’s only love in the dark…”
    Now THAT was pretty deep for a 13 yr old (LoL)
    I remember them all (tapping in to my inner-whitechild)

  16. Hey EJ, I know I don’t post here much, but this is what I was thinking about today. Willie Bobo Neckbones and Homefried to a decent baseline. Then blend in Redman from that CD he did with Meth “I walk like I talk with a ****** up pivot” and then Cypres Hill (from Kill a Man) “I’m just another local gettin paid for my vocal.” Scratch on the “vocal” a little and run the loop a few times and it’s on. And now, it’s time for sleep:) Have a good holiday.

  17. Wow EJ! You are taking me bacl to my California days – before there were strict “black radio” stations. Thanks for the flashback!
