Throwback Friday: “Human Nature” by Madonna

This morning I tweeted, “if there were a job for being thrown under the bus i’d be employee of the month…” and got a video link in reply from James Elmore (@StageAdaptation) for “Human Nature” by Madonna- this week’s Throwback Friday post.

Throwback Friday: “Take Your Time (Do it Right)” by S.O.S. Band

The SOS Band landed their first hit with “Take Your Time (Do it Right)” on their self titled debut album released in 1980. The song was co-written by Sigidi Abdullah and Harold Clayton and featured the sweet melodic vocals of their lead singer Mary Davis. Soon after the single’s release, they caught the attention of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis who helped them write and produce a slew of smash hit dance tracks throughout the 80s including “Just Be Good to Me” and “Weekend Girl.”

Throwback Friday: “Gone” by N Sync (a dedication)

On December 12, 2010, I lost someone in my immediate family who left this world way too young and too soon…Music was an area that we often found common ground…While “Gone” by N Sync doesn’t readily seem directly relevant, a lot of the lyrics ring true.

Throwback Friday: “What I Am” by Edie Brickell and New Bohemians

Last night, I watched VH1’s “100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80s,” and I was in throwback heaven! #24 on the list sang to my Bohemian heart…Edie Brickell & New Bohemians video for “What I Am.” The song came off the Dallas, Texas group’s album entitled “Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars”

Throwback Friday: “Tom’s Diner” by Suzanne Vega (DNA remix)

n 1990, the British dance music production duo by the name of DNA (Nick Batt and Neal Slateford) took the a capella “Tom’s Diner,” by Suzanne Vega, and created a catchy dance music mix that was a club anthem and still a classic…eventually peaking at #5 on the Hot 100.
