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!!

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!

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.
