I Was Made To Love Her – Stevie Wonder

My next artist needs no huge fanfare. Most of us grew up listening to Stevie Wonder. Some of us even grew up with him, given that he and I are born in the same year 1950. His first song would debut when he was 11. I would have an opportunity to see him live in Birmingham, England in 1964. He was part of the Motown Revue that was touring throughout…

Come Share My Love – Miki Howard

In the early 1980s, we had singers like Anita Baker, Toni Braxton and my next singer Miki Howard. These women added a blend of Gospel, Jazz and R&B. This mix was to provide them with several hits. Miki Howard was born into a musical family. Both mother and father were members of two top Gospel groups. Her father Clay Graham sang with the Pilgrim Jubilees and her mother Josephine Howard…

We Got The Funk – Positive Force

  I am at the end of this week’s “Flashback Friday.” My last selection is definitely one of the groups that established House music as a genre.

Founded by Nate Edmonds, who was a producer for the Sugarhill Records. The group never made it big…

Batdance – Prince

  Prince was one of those musician/talented individuals that you knew would leave an impression on the world the first time you see or hear them. In his earlier work he tended to be very provocative. Songs like Darling Nikki, Come, Orgasm, and Sexy M.F. Darling Nikki was considered so risqué that a bunch of people decided to create a censorship organization, the Parents Music Resource Center. Prince was to…

Pump Up The Jam – Technotronic

  Alright, we are moving into the House music era. My next selection was probably the first House music song to make it on the American Dance charts. The group Technotronic was the idea of Jo Baegert, a displaced American, who moved to Belgium with the vision of becoming a music producer. His thought was to take the heavy bass and dance grooves and mix them with Hip-Hop. He pulled…
