I was feeling Ohio Players so it’s only natural that Heatwave, Parliament, and Slave would follow in sequence, right? Imagination’s Music And Lights has gotta be one of the funkiest tracks that never got significant airplay. Jody Watley’s Still A Thrill is my personal favorite off of her first album.
We bring back house music with arguably one of Mr. Fingers finest tracks he ever released, What About This Love? Culture Club’s Time (Clock Of The Heart) is one of the mainstays that I never get tired of, as is Raydio’s track. It’s all about Robbie Dupree’s Steal Away which is one of those tracks they used to play on Quiet Storm back in the day.
I followed up with Fleetwood Mac’s Everywhere which is one of my favorite songs from them, which fit well with Michael Franks’ Mr. Smooth. Wendy and Lisa’s Stay has always been one of the tracks from them I play constantly when I pick up their CD. Of course, you know I had to cap this off with a Teena Marie’s Dear Lover.
Somethin’ about music….it got into my pants…..
