Every generation thinks the music of their youth is better than the what’s being played today.  In my case, it is actually true.  Let me present, MC Hammer.

Yeah, I had the shoes.  I had the baggy pants, white shirt with the black vest.  I’m not ashamed to admit it.  The “You Can’t Touch This” video, I had all the steps down cold.  You couldn’t tell me I didn’t.

I miss the time when rap was fun and actually good.

“You Can’t Touch This”

“Pray”

“Turn This Mutha Out”

“2 Legit 2 Quit”

Enjoy!

Okay, everyone likes to joke about this group now but you know you were jamming to this back in the day.  Robert Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan weren’t actually singing on these tracks but that doesn’t change the fact that they made an impact on the 80’s.  Look at their style.  Look at those braids and tight biker pants.  The silly dance moves.  They were the 80’s.  And we all were singing along.

“Girl, You know it’s True”

“Blame It on the Rain”

Go ahead, admit it.  You liked Milli Vanilli, didn’t you?

Musical Look Back – Michael Jackson vs. Prince

The 80’s gave us two of the greatest musical artist ever in their prime.  Michael Jackson and Prince both released their classic albums in 1982 and 1984, respectively.  Sure, they have both gone on to have several other hits but Michael’s “Thriller” and Prince’s “Purple Rain” set records and established both as music royalty.

Remember when there was a debate over who was better?  I liked them both equally.  Until I say the movie “Purple Rain”.       When my teenage self heard Prince Rogers Nelson speak his first line I was down with Team Prince.  I didn’t care if  he wore heels and lace.  The man was and is still sexy.

Favorite Prince song:  Too many to name but at the top of the list would be “Adore”.

Favorite Michael song:  Again, too many to name but at the top would be “Man in the Mirror.”

What’s your favorite Prince or Michael Jackson song?

The Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam post last week got me thinking about the men behind that groups sound.  Full Force produced several artists to include Samantha Fox, Bob Dylan, UTFO, ‘N Sync and the Backstreet Boys.

Their music takes me back to my teenage years of house parties and school “hops”.  Jeri curled members  are Paul Anthony, Bow-Legged Lou, Shy Shy, B-Fine, Curt-T-T and Baby Gee.

Check out my favorites:

“Ain’t My Type of Hype”

“All in My Mind”

“Alice, I Want You Just For Me”

“Temporary Love Thing”

Enjoy!

Musical Look Back – Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam

The year was 1985 and I was a high school junior in total like/lust with a neighborhood boy.  He was older (I always did like a more mature man) and I was contemplating the question every young girl must decide.  When and who should I lose my virginity too?  This boy was in the running but I wasn’t sure.  That’s when Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam came on the music scene.  Their song “I Wonder If I Take You Home” was my personal anthem.  I played this track off there self titled album over and over.    I ultimately decided that he wasn’t worth it  (Good call on my part!) but I still love this group to this day.

Check out some of my favorites from this group?

“I Wonder If I Take You Home”

“All Cried Out”

“Head to Toe”

Enjoy!
