Saturday Night #BlackLivesMatter Protest Party! (Part 5)

This is how I am feeling right now.

In memory of Michael Brown.

Kicking it old school again this week.

  2. And Sly and the Family Stone!!! Singing LIVE on Soul Train! And... Under the Boardwalk. I used to sing that every time I was at the beach at Coney Island. You can't get under the boardwalk anymore; they filled it in with sand. Amazing how many memories these songs bring back. White America (and not the USA alone) embraces the music, the culture, and the style but not the people. As Sly (and the Family) said: Stand!

  3. Lena singing Stormy Weather... such a class act. Just like Anne Marie.
    You're my favorite DJ. Happy 4th of July, hon.

  4. Oh my, I remember all of these! Sly seems to be enjoying himself so much, it's infectious! I used to wonder what a mice elf was and why did he want to be one!
    No one can touch Aaron Neville's voice on Tell it like it is. I can go on but I won't. I run the gamut from like to love with these. Thanks Carebear.

  7. If the 'perfect person' is to be believed the firework display above Mt Rushmore must have been a sight to behold. The biggest display EVER, we are told. And why should we NOT believe him? He's the best informed person on Planet Earth, we've been assured, and said by someone who never lies, therefore it MUST be true. .

    Have a jolly fine w/e, y'all.

  16. Excellent playlist. Thanks for all of the wonderful memories with that music. I remember Michael Brown as that isn't too far from where I have family in St. Louis. Unfortunately, we still haven't made enough progress from that day. Take care.
