#Music Breaking Up Is Hard To Do Series Part II @XmasDolly

 

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! February is the month of love, and we typically think romance with Cupid sporting hearts to pierce with his arrow. But, heart breaks are also found in February and we all know nothing hurts like a romantic break up, but a band breakup?! Well…that’s a double heart breaker ~ for the group and their fans. This morning, I’m continuing to share hits of a one the messiest band breakups mentioned in Rolling Stone’s 2013 article in my addition of Breaking up is hard to do series part II with…

#SaturdaySongsuasion featuring a “rock and roll band with horns” @chicagotheband

Good-morning kittens & dawgs! Yesterday’s Flashback Friday memories of my school days reminded me of the music I enjoyed. One of my favorite bands was the one DH introduced to me.

In the late 60s, this self-described “rock and roll band with horns” launched their politically charged, sometimes experimental sound before finding their niche in soft rock.

In the bands’ early days, Jimi Hendrix once told Parazaider, “Jeez, your horn players are like one set of lungs and your guitar player is better than me.” That’s quite the compliment considering Hendrix’s reputation on the guitar, eh?

Throughout the 70s and 80s, this group produced a continuous flow of Billboard singles and albums sensations, second to none other than the Beach Boys in success among American rock bands known as Chicago.

Saturday Song-suasion 59: The Four Tops

In case you haven’t read, I’m taking a break this month. Although, I unplugged myself from the world beyond my computer, I did think before hand about my lovelies and threw together a whole month of music for your enjoyment.

It seems inspiration in music takes me back again to my childhood.  Today’s featured group always impressed me with how they danced in sync. Looking back I don’t why it mesmerized me, but it did.

The Four Tops was one group among many to form the sound of Motown.  In my opinion this era cranked out some of the best music ever. Now turn up your speakers for some oldies!

Saturday Song-suasion 58: The Platters

In case you haven’t read, I’m taking a break this month. Although I unplugged myself from the world beyond my computer, I did think beforehand about my lovelies and threw together a whole month of music for your enjoyment.

Reminded recently of a group I enjoyed from my childhood, I thought I’d share this 60s great band with you, The Platters!

The Platters came together as a group in 1952. I was born nearly a decade later in ’61 and in the mid-to-late 60s,  I recall listening to The Platters on my auntie’s recorder player.  Let’s revisit some of the greatest hits by The Platters with this marvelous playlist.

 

Which Platters tune do you like the best? Or, are there just too many to say you have only one favorite? Thank you for taking time out of your weekend in hopping over to listen to the music! I hope you enjoyed your visit. In fact, I hope you enjoyed it so much that you cannot wait to tell your friends. Go ahead, hit the share (Facebook, Twitter, Google+) button! You know you wanna. 😉

Have a songsational day and be sure to stop by next week another edition of  Saturday Song-suasion!

Rolling Stone magazine described Earth, Wind, & Fire as “innovative, precise yet sensual, calculated yet galvanizing” and has also declared that the band “changed the sound of black pop”.

Good-morning/afternoon, lovelies! The weekend is here, and it’s a holiday weekend at that, which makes me extremely happy. A few days ago, this song got stuck in my head. I figured the best way for me to purge it was to share it with you…

I won’t take offense, f you jump out of your seat to dance to the 80s classic hits of Hall & Oates playlist.

To own these songs and more, like I did, then download The Essential Daryl Hall and John Oates now!
