I Grew Up On 'em

My first favorite singer was Brenton Woods (Whoop It On Me, The Oogum, Boogum Song) and I was only four years old! Then it was Diana Ross and Aretha Franklin (apparently I'd sing Respect as I walked down the street and serenade strangers) at the same age, and so one. I still love 'em! The Delfonics, Stevie Wonder, Smoke Robinson, The Temptations, Ben E. King, The Four Tops, The Drifters... and many more make up my favorite oldies. There's just something pure and innately wholesome about the music that never ceases to make me smile!!

By the way.. Have any of you noticed some radio stations now claim they play "oldies" ? They play eighties rock, mostly disco. I work where I have to listen to that all day long, and it hurts my brain.

I thought disco died.. didn't realize it got revived. Like a bad Frankenstein movie. Do some of the radio people miss the chartreuse and other ghastly colors of both men's and women's clothing and the leisure suits of the eighties too ? I can't say that with any authority but ... just a thought.

Not only that but they throw in some Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum just to mix it up a bit ..... there is nothing like being committed to one era, right ? I know there were some good song writers and singers of that era though .. Whitney Huston comes to mind .. maybe others..

I had have a listen to Brenton Woods, it has been ages. "music that never ceases to make me smile!" and you are so right on - Smiles all around. Thanks!

Motown was purely rich and fresh...* Martha and the Vandellas... too. The song writing was the best... the stage shows were fantastic... The singing was beyond compare..

I grew up listening to the Beatles when they were in vogue, as well as many of the above-mentioned vocalists and groups in your story. There's always been good and bad music in every era, but most of today's music is cheap, coarse and tinny-sounding compared to the music back then.

I see. I have a collection of old Country songs.
