Funky Friday Song of the Day- Alicia Keys

Great Performance!!!
I love this video for so many reasons. First, “Heartburn” is a kickin’ tune. Two, her voice is amazing. Three, the backup singers and band where killin’ it, and Four, she looked fabulous….and OH! those legs in silver shimmer.
From the 1st guitar rift, reminiscent of the 1970 blaxploitation film soundtracks, the groove is, and remains funky. Alicia Keys’ strut within the shadow, is just so cool, and so fine…Foxy Brown, Cleopatra Jones and Shaft would be so proud. Tina Turner too, with all that slick and funky shimmying. Can’t get enough

Funky Friday Song of the Day- Barry White and Love Unlimited Orchestra

1974, this song came out and my parents were all over it!
We had all of Barry White’s albums, singles, various versions etc. Household name in our home
I remember seeing Barry White on Soul Train and thinking to myself “….this brotha is a bad mutha”. His slick hair, his style, his VOICE
He didn’t make me melt, but I did pay attention to his music. It was unique at that time with the Love Unlimited Orchestra, and I believe still stands up to this day. It was real music, with real musicians and a real band
1974 killed us with some damn good music
