How funny, today at work me and some co-workers were on youtube looking up old school songs. It started with me wanted to hear Tina Turner's Fool in Love. Then we went to M.J. And Paul McCarty's Say Say Say, then we went to Reva Jackson's Centipede (I'm sure that is spelled wrong). Then it was on to LaToya's Hearts Don't Lie. If one of troops had not needed me it would have went own and own.

Nat King Cole (I should have used him for men/perms).

Smokey was fine.

clnmike 22 August, 2008 12:18

Happy OSF, you went with the classics, good choice.

MrsGrapevine 22 August, 2008 12:36

Regina these are great choices, that I never would have thought of. This is what singing is about sometimes. Keeping it simple and smooth.

Quick 22 August, 2008 14:51

I saw Smokey Robinson at a hotel last summer. He loks like he had some some work done (what is he like 70?) but he looked TASTY still! Happy OSF!

Danielle 22 August, 2008 16:51

A bit late on getting my OSF up and discovered that we are really of like minds. I shared Mona Lisa by Cole and Crosby.

Smokey, Smokey, Smokey. He must have got that name for his voice.

All this crooning has me swooning.

Have a Blessed Weekend.

Light and Love all the day Long.
