Regina you're tryin' to start something gurl!!! Great choices.

iriegal 09 May, 2008 09:36

Great choices. I loved your "Claudine" choice the best. That movie brought back so much memories living in Harlem in the 1970's.

I was gonna post that soundtrack from Color Purple as well, but I went different route.


Believer 1964 09 May, 2008 11:44

I haven't seen the movie Armageddon (1998) and need to put that on my list. Thanks!

The Aerosmith song choice is good, real good!

MsMarvalus 09 May, 2008 12:02

Love the Aerosmith and I are on the same wavelength with The Color Purple!

Danielle 09 May, 2008 12:03

Good stuff Regina. I couldn't stand the movie "Armageddon", but love me some Aerosmith!

How can you go wrong w/Gladys and Curtis Mayfield's "The Makings of You".

You and Marva are killing me w/The Color Purple. I swear I'm gonna start cryin'.

Quick 09 May, 2008 12:10

"i don't wanna close my eyes"...I LOVE THIS SONG!!!! lol

That Girl Boo 09 May, 2008 16:52

Aerosmith is a great artist, hard on the eyes but a great artist :o}

The Color Purple what a classic, how I love that song it moves my soul, I'm gonna have to fight DP next week for the key board and put down my songs ;-}

Invisible Woman 09 May, 2008 17:32

Aerosmith? Go on and git it girl! lol :-)

Shelia 09 May, 2008 18:04

Hi Regina!

I like all of those, especially Gladys, she's just about one of the most soulful chicks ever!

LaKeshia 09 May, 2008 21:37

Maybe God is...I love it!

Jenn 09 May, 2008 22:37

Yes, Three great choices!
Have a nice weekend.

The True Urban Queen aka Sharon 09 May, 2008 22:49

I never heard the Aerosmith song.
I have to get the movie Claudine, never seen it.
That is one of my favorite parts of The Color Purple.


Out of the three, I am only familiar with Aerosmiths: I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing and I love the song.

Speaking of Claudine, they have been showing this movie on the TVOne network, but I can never seen to catch it in its entirety. I dig a lot of 70's movies, so I am definitely gonna try and catch it and then I will know where the Gladys Knight song came from.

I figured there was a theme, but at the time I posted mine, I didn't know it. The song from The Color Purple was my favorite in the movie, and after that was Sister.
