The Week Is Finally Over!! I love Fridays because I get to travel all over the web listening to great music posted by my blogging friends for Old School Friday!
Tomorrow is Saturday... I remember as a child watching Soul Train every Saturday morning, And YES I did almost kill myself trying to dance like they did!!! For African Americans that was TV's best hour on Saturdays (after that the kids all went outside)! I remember the word scramble that spelled out the days artist, I remember Don Cornelius yelling out Love, Peace & Sooouuullllll, at the end of every episode. But the best part of the show undoubtedly had to be the Soul Train Line!! The clothes, the shoes, the moves, the colors and of course the HAIR! Yep those were the days, No bumping & grinding, No gyrating, just plain old fun!
This took me much, much longer than I expected because there were so many AWESOME artists and performances showcased on Soul Train (even if everyone did lip synch!), how can you choose??? I know that my fellow Old Schoolers will give you a dance party so I will start you off smooth...
I am very interested to see what my fellow OSF participants post with this theme.
