Shoutouts to my mother for her card and backgommon parties and playing this music extra loud and putting me on to great music
I knew these posts would really be just for me lol I just love music … and the 80s were THE best era of music (You know I’ll have to give the same treatment to Hip Hop)
… last we left with 1980 and 1981 so ….
Remember when Janet Jackson’s first album came out?
Yeah most people don’t she dropped the same year as Thriller … bad move
… Nice cover though
Wow … Luther came out the same year as “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay” … doesn’t seem right
I LOVE “Love come down” by Evelyn “Champaign” King … and her name
The Time came out with 777-9311 and The Walk, and Gigolo’s get lonely too
Stephanie Mills dropped twice
Prince made 1999 (Still a genius for dropping 1999 IN 1982!)
Nasty Girl and Vanity 6 came out … everyone wanted Vanity!
Shalamar made all the songs that people don’t remember lol
Even Sexual Healing came out … he was that dude in the video!!!
Quietly Jermaine Jackson’s “Tickle your fancy” was a banger
One of my favorite songs to this day “Let it Whip” by the Dazz band dropped
“Love’s Train” by ConFunkShun
Album of the year is a no brainer
Van Halen w/ David Lee Roth made Jump … that was that band lol
Prince made “Irresistible Bitch” I remember not knowing what “Bitch” was just that it was bad lol
Everybody (but me) skated to “Jam On” by Newcleus
My Favorite Singer Chaka Khan made Aint Nobody
I use to LOVE “Encore” by Cheryl Lynn
DeBarge made Time will Reveal … I didn’t appreciate it till way later
I do remember “Wet my Whistle” and “Freakazoid” by Midnight Star but nothing killed it like “Slow Jam”
Cyndi Lauper came out
Herbie Hancock made Rockit … that video use to scare me
My Mother use to jam “Just be good to me” by S.O.S Band constantly
I can make you dance rocked by Zapp w/ Roger
Luther coulda kept that “Busy Body” album if it weren’t for Superstar
Oh and you had to skate it out (cept me) to Beat Box by Art of Noise
All night long by Lionel Richie came out
I remember when I was real little I would play Candy Girl by New Edition and Juicy Fruit by Mtume back to back to back constantly … those were like my favorite songs ever
So that’s my Album of the year
That’s all I got … Rock to the rotation w/ me (Click on the ipod to the right) … next up 1984 and 1985! It’s getting good!
