Didn’t even know the name this song, but had the groove firmly lodged in my brain this morning.

Idris Muhammed – Could Heaven Be Like This?

Total classic, much sampled, and now playing in my brain on repeat. In my head I am also wearing my big flares and spinning round a dance floor. Ahhh.

The Roches – Hammond Song

Don’t think I’ve even heard this song recently, but there it is in my brain in all its harmonic glory.

A soothing song for a Sunday. A dreamy pastoral. Reeeee-lax.

Cab Calloway – (Hep! Hep!) Jumpin’ Jive

Luther Vandross – A House is not a Home

Saw a clip from this on Soul America last night. What an interpretation of song. Never oversinging or bellowing, impressive, emotional, perfect singing. I watched the whole thing this morning and burst into tears. What a loss. I was too young to really understand when he was around.

 

And as I have said before, fat Luther, skinny Luther, ANY KIND OF LUTHER!
