Old School Friday #16 "Not Just Another Sad Love Song"

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 ,

Bill Whithers – “Aint No Sunshine” was my first thought but I already posted him so I had to move on to someone else! My second choice was Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes – “I Miss You” but I already posted that too! So I had to move on, luckily there is NO shortage of good Old School Music out there! Enjoy my picks!

The Persuaders – “It’s A Thin Line Between Love And Hate”

Now, THAT was old school!! Have a great weekend!
Happy OSF! Peace & Love!!

    Ok, I’m supposed to be working but I’m sitting here singing “Too Much Too Little Too Late” and not getting anything done!I forgot ALL about that song but as soon as the video started, it all came back to me.Speaking of Mr. Bill Withers, I have that song on my iPod and my darling 5 yr old Princess (bless her heart she’s about the only one that likes my singing) used to make me sing it to her all the time. I was singing it along with the radio one day and from there on out she’d ask me to sing “that Sunshine song”. And now…SHE sings it. Its on my iPod as well as hers and she knows the words. Her favorite part is “I know, I know, I know, I know, I know…”My mom, the woman that raised me on old soul music, was so tickled when I called her up and had Princess sing it to her over the phone. I have a video of her singing it saved on my cell phone.LOVE LOVE love your song choices!

    Thin line is the stalker anthem, after the movie I can never hear that song without thinking crazy-deranged.These are just classics, they make me feel good. These are feel good songs, Anything with Teddy in it, is a feel-good song. The too little, too late is the jam. Now, this is another sad love song..
