As I listened through the discography of Hi-Five and Tony Thompson, I realized how much I missed the songs like Quality Time, I Wanna Love Like That and Fly Away.
What I had totally not realized were songs written by Babyface (Dance With Me), songs written by Mary J. Blige and Faith (I Know), oldies he complimented (the awesome remake of My Cherie Amour). Tony was a great vocalist and he will be missed. Special thanks to Trent for his tribute to this man. Definitely on point.
Two more podcasts will be posted here in the next 24 hours. Watch for them. Until then, take it light.
