RJ Latest Arrival, this was a quite group, but they made sweet music. Who did not love Hold On and every guy I knew loved the lead singer. She was a knock out! 

 

Here are a few songs that should bring back some serious memories. Hall and Oates’ Maneater album was the BOMB!  I love their song One on One.  They put it down!

 

Midnight Star would have had the Album of The Year if not for one Michael Jackson and some album called Thriller.  Midnight Star attended Kentucky State University. I graduated from KSU some years later, but they were legends and rocked one Homecoming.  I recall that moment, we won the football game, I had a great game and went to the step show and then the concert. Good Ole days!

 

Cameo, Cameo, I loved this group. They morphed into a lot of things over the years, but they continued to put out some jams. Attack Me With Your Love is still slamming.

 

This is what old school is about. Remembering back in the day when it was ALL GOOD!

You have that right! Listening to the radio back in the day was the thing to do!  Doing homework, listening to the cuts....I would give a lot to go back to that time for just a moment!

OK, this has definitely created some major flashbacks.... lol... I have to agree that I didn't have any problems with listening to music and doing my homework until much later. I like the beats but when I listen closely to the words....I am in shock. :(

I hear you! Back in the day!

Yes, I love old school music!  Back in the day, we could listen to this type of music and study in the evenings.  Also, bring our 45 records to school dances and did not have to worry about all that bad language!   Thanks for sharing......what a relief!!!!!

Weekend Girl was a great song by SOS Band. Reminds me of my childhood.  The Finest was another of this groups amazing run of hits.  This was a time when radio was the life line of the community and the music was the tie that bind.

 

Just added Eurythmics Sweet Dreams  with Annie Lennox.  Odd looking, but hot music.
