Old School Friday #13 "Remakes"

You Know What It Is!!!!
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) to relive some memories, and to educate or just entertain each other.
Ms Grapevine and MarvalusOne have teamed up to create a meme titled Old School Friday and since I love my music I had to sign up to join! If you want to join in the Old School Fun then go HERE for the guidelines.

The theme for this week ,

“Remakes”

This theme needs no explanation! So join in and post your favorite old school song or just visit the other participants and enjoy the music!!

Here are the other “Old School Friday” participants:

This theme was fun for me because whenever a song comes out that is a remake I have to school my kids on the original! They are always surprised, but I don’t know why most of today’s music is remade or sampled! So I am posting the remake and the original! So here goes, Enjoy!

Whitney Houston – I’m Every Woman (Remake)

Chaka Khan – I’m Every Woman (Original)

Isley Brothers – Summer Breeze (Remake)

Seals & Crofts – Summer Breeze (Original)

Happy OSF! Peace & Love!!

    Regina I didn’t know that Summer Breeze by the Isley Brother was a remix. I have always loved the Isley music.

    @ All – I love the Isleys version of Summer Breeze, but the original is awesome also! And ms. Whitney did her thang, but who can out do CHAKA?? NOBODY!!I love Summer breeze and had no clue it was a remake until last night(uh actually at 2 this morning!). I was goggling remakes of the 60’s & 70’s and that popped up! I was amazed! it’s only a 2 year difference, which is fast for a remake, Croft & seals did it in 72, and the Isley’s in 74.I love OSF, It is a great learning tool! Everyone enjoy your weekend!Peace & LoveRegina

    I learned something new here today. I didn’t know that Summer Breeze was a remix when the Isley Brothers unleashed it. Livin’ and learnin’…I’m Every Woman is a popular choice on the OSF meme this week (smile)…peace, Villager

    Hello Regina! I like “Summer Breeze” It is on my 70s blog.

    These are both great choices, Whitney and Chaka made the song their own, in the words of Simon Cowell.Summer Breeze is just a beautiful song.It makes me want to sip some wine on a hammock close to a beach with Jasmine in my hair.

    L-O-V-E Summer Breeze by the Isleys. Even tho I knew it was a remake, I always thought the Isleys blew S & D out of the water with their version!
