Old School Friday #4

Well, you know what day it is…FRIDAY!! Which is my favorite day of the week because I get to post my “Old School Friday” Picks! In case you are new around these parts and don’t know what “Old School Friday” is, well it is grown folks MUSIC! Yes we post some music that comes from some time before 2000, hopefully before the 90’s, maybe some from before the 80’s, etc. If you post something from the 70’s – 60’s or before you are REALLY Old School!
Ms Grapevine and MarvalusOne have teamed up to create a meme titled Old School Friday and since I love my classic R&B I had to sign up to join. However your selection does not only have to be R&B. If you want to join in the Old School Fun then go HERE for the guidelines.
Also check out the other “Old School Friday” participants:

I Love Old School Friday so much that I have decided to supply three selections and they are:
Otis Redding: Try A Little Tenderness

The Delfonics – La La La Means I Love You (Very Smooth Brothers!)

Marvin Gaye – Distant Lover (Now THIS is Grown Folk Music!!)

Peace & Love!

    I never understood the title of that song, talk about irony, there’s nothing “tender” about ‘Try A Little Tenderness.” That’s as rough as it comes. I don’t know if I should catch the holy dance, or pop lock and drop it. That song has too much grit to be tender, and that’s why I love it.You have taken us through the cycle of loving. We got a little tenderness, a little romance, and a little dirt.I miss Marvin Gaye so much, I think he would still be relevant to this generation today if he were alive; which reminds me of two songs…hmmmm. I’ll save them for next week.

    Good golly Miss Molly, THAT was just wayyyyy too good!You can sure pick ’em! I have to concur with MrsGrapevine, miss him, it wasa terrible loss. There just isn’t music made like this now. Or, I am just not finding it…God bless you, Regina!

    Hey it may be Grown Folk’s Music but it’s still better than the crap they have on the radio today! It music needs to go back to its roots. Or better still it should move forward.
