OSW: Summer Cooldown

It’s hot and muggy outside. Why don’t we take out drinks, and cool out after
the sun sets?

Old
School Wednesday: Summertime Cooldown.


01 – DeBarge – Stay With Me. I was actually thinking
about Notorious B.I.G. and thought I would dig in the crates for the song he sampled
from.
02 – Daryl Hall & John Oates – One on One.
Blue eyed soul at it’s
finest.
03 – The Chi-Lites – Give It Away.
I was thinking Swing Out Sister’s
influences when I pulled this out the crate.
04 – Switch – Don’t Take My Love Away.
Nikki
mentioned that this was one of her favorite B-sides from them, so I pulled it
out.
05 – Stevie Wonder – Rocket Love.
I could have done an entire radio blog
of Stevie’s cooldown tracks to represent this summer.
06 – Michael Jackson – It’s The Falling In Love.
Remember this cut from
Off The Wall?
07 – Alexander O’neal – Look At Us Now.
From his debut abum.
08 – Michael Cooper – Dinner for Two.
From Love Is Such A Funny Game.
09 – Kashif – Help Yourself To My Love.

10 – Lionel Richie – Love Will Find a Way.
From Can’t Slow Down.
11 – Gwen Guthrie – (They Long To Be) Close To You.
A great cover of
a hit by The Carpenters.
12 – Soul II Soul – Missing You.
Kym Mazell lights up this track.
13 – Colonel Abrams – Table For Two.
He was known mostly for his house
tracks, but this mellow cut was overlooked.
14 – Pebbles – Baby Love.
From her debut album.
15 – Portrait – You.

Enjoy.
