"I intend to live forever. So far, so good." - Steven Wright
To celebrate Black History Month, I am going to feature great Black singers, dancers, actors who have stood the tests of time and the civil rights struggles they endured.
PS - HAPPY BIRTHDAY (February 11) to San Geraldo (Mitchell's husband)!
Oh man, so many good ones. Diana, of course, But Gladys and Jody! The Staple Singers. The Pointers. The Weather Girls!I'll be here all day!
FIRST! and more great tunes next week, bob!
So much good music to enjoy this morning. I hope you have a great weekend!
and plenty more next week, dear!
Oh joy! This is my absolute favorite Sister Sledge song! Thanks for choosing that one, Carebear. A good selection, as usual.
I did not know that, duchess! will smith samples the intro in "gettin' jiggy wit it".
Oh, my... the sisters are bringing it today. Nancy Wilson. I keep forgetting about her... she gets lost between Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughan. Adore. And Gladys... always a welcome voice. An absolute celebration. Donna, et. al. Thank you, Ms. Anne Marie... DJ Supreme. Kizzes.
sisters are doing it for themselves, dear!
So many faves here! Happy Black History Month, everyone!
more faves next week, debra!
What an incredible selection of talent and inspiration. Eartha Kitt and C'est Si Bon was on one of my crossword puzzles today. You'll have me singing all night (but I'll bet you hear that all the time).
fascinating, captain. 2 brains on the same wavelength.
So many good songs, I must say Ella, Nina and Dinah, no one had voices like them...they brought life to every song they did.
yep. you can pick their voices out immediately.
Happy Black History Month! This is a GREAT selection (as usual!) Anne Marie!
thank you jen!
I like your choices, anne marie in philly. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be the Pointer Sisters.
I think they sang that song better than bruce springsteen.
Lots of great songs, but I must admit, I've always had a hell of a soft spot in my heart for It's Raining Men.
all my menz friends say that!
Happy weekend dear one
it's snowing like crazy up here! again!
let the good times roll, spo!
This playlist is so hot is not even funny. I'm always amazed at the Black excellence of these performers. I think I'm going to follow your lead and I'll write a post about BHM. Always good to keep in mind.XOXOP.S. Did you get my addy?
I did get your name & address. unfortunately, the 14" of snow last monday and the 3" more we got yesterday have prevented me from posting your package. I have an MD appointment tomorrow morning, so I will try to post your package then.
Oohhhh thanks daahlink! And no worries!XOXO
