Hit-making songwriter Claude Kelly, dubbed the “Studio Beast,” penned the recently leaked Leona Lewis and Jennifer Hudson ballad “Love Is Your Color.” “Love Is Your Color” is the feature collaboration by two of today’s biggest divas off of the forthcoming original soundtrack for the new movie “Sex And The City 2,” out May 25 and in theaters May 27, respectively.
Now here’s a song that’s for rolling up the windows in your car and singing at the top of your lungs or in the shower while you’re getting crunked for your work day- especially the chorus. The year is 1985, and the movie “Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome” was in theaters. Tina Turner was at the prime of her singing career, although we can argue that her music is timeless. “We Don’t Need Another Hero” by Tina Turner was the theme song for “Mad Max” a film in which she also played a leading role of Aunty Entity alongside Mel Gibson (“Max”). If you listen to the lyrics, between singing at the top of your lungs 😆 , the song speaks of peace and hope for the future. The video for the song and won a MTV Music Award for Best Female Video and peaked at #2 on the US Billboard charts.
Throwback Friday- Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes “Time of My Life” (Dirty Dancing)…RIP Patrick Swayze
This week’s Throwback Friday was a no brainer with the passing of Patrick Swayze. Dirty Dancing came out in 1987 which would put me in middle or high school. It was one of those movies that EVERYBODY saw, not just once but over and over and over again. The soundtrack played in Sony Walkman’s…the cassette tape kind. We tried to mimick dirty dancing to the disgust of our parents. Oh, and don’t forget that Patrick Swayze was an absolute heartthrob! His dance moves and those dimples could just kill!
