Old School Friday: Gone but not forgotten

Though many deserve consideration on this weeks OSF theme -Luther, Left Eye, Marvin Gaye, M.J. and many others, I’m dedicating the entire post to Aaliyah.  She made so much wonderful music in such a short period of time.  Even with 4 videos represented here, I’m still missing One in a...

Old School Friday: I had a crush on!!!

The Marvalus One has thrown out a doozie this week.    The only direction: I had a crush on.  There are a lot of candidates: Tracy Spenser, Shanice, Salt & Pepa, Dawn from EnVogue. But I had to go with the following: Vanessa Williams – Just For Tonight Who didn’t love...

Old School Friday: “Sade”

All I can say is that as a high school senior and college freshman I rocked Sade all the time.  I guess rocked is sort of a misnomer, b/c it often accompanied a melancholy mood.  Sade gave way to Mary J. though (why did Sade quit making music?).  Looks like...

Old School Friday: First Date/Love Song

Well the Marvalus One decided to slow it down this week, going with an Old School Friday theme of First Date/Love Song.  So I go back to the days of puppy love, breathing on the phone saying nothing, and 3 month relationships.  The song that always comes to mind when...

Old School Friday: Divas

This one was easy. I was a huge En Vogue fan back in the day. They came along during the heart of my teenage years, and could do not wrong as far as I was concerned. So consider this the En Vogue edition of Old School Friday. This is a...

Old School Friday: My Wedding Song

K-CI & JOJO – All My Life by Momo59-93 This one was easy.  Here’s the song that Martin Hodges played as Ms. Tamela Fields walked down the aisle of the Unity Center almost 11 years ago and became my wife.  Even at the age of 24, I had prayed for...
