First, I LOVE CHAKA KHAN.
She has one of the most powerful soulful voices I’ve ever heard, and one of the most sharpest hip moves to this day.
“Once You Get Started”, is one of the 1st 45’s that I remember hearing in my house. And I would play it over and over again. It’s a Soulful tune with a whole lotta Funk
Bob Marley, a Messiah.
“Redemption Song” one of the most influential songs to date and the lyrics are still stand true in this day and age.
Dedicated to a special friend who’s a huge fan. Thinking about you
Labelle…how do I describe my love for thee?
They come from the planet Funkensty, where you wear the most amazingly outrageous outfits and belt out the sweet nectar of smooth funk ‘n soul, whilst being beautiful, sexy, and sing like there’s no tomorrow
Patti Labelle, Sarah Dash and the amazing Nona Hendryx….Ladies U is FIYAH!
I first heard this song on one of my favourite radio stations, WBLK. I would tape songs using my cassette tapes and remember listening and LOVING IT!
I know you’ve all done this…taping the dj at the end of the song, because you didn’t reach for the PAUSE button quick enough. Well this song had the DJ at the end of the song and after a while I’m thinking its part of the song. (you all know what I mean)
I remember as a youngster hearing this song for the 1st time and thinking..damn this is hot. It became one of my favourite dance tunes that always made the rotation. Needless to say I learned quickly that funk comes in many different shades and I LOVE that
