Old School Friday #22 "Break Up Songs"

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 1999, (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! To join in the Old School Friday Fun go Here for guidelines.

    Oh girl I went straight to Heartbreak Hotel. I immediately thought of the Michael Jackson version. I love this song. 🙂

    Great choice. I’ve not heard Dionne in awhile. I’ve always loved her music.

    They took all your songs down, but lucky me, I know two out of three. I don’t know the Lil Mon song, I will go find it on you tube and give it a listen. Now that you mentioned Whitney, I have a few more break-up songs that come to mind, “I Learned From the Best”, and “All at Once.”Where is Dionne Warwick, now?

    Yea like Marvalus, I can only hear Luther’s version. He just makes you forget! And I loved on one of the tribute albums where Elton John “dueted” with him. Sounded great. Excellent choice.Ironically I just saw that video for HBH not long ago. I loved the three of them on that. Perfect combo. They all looked BEAUTIFUL in the video.Hope you’re having a great time!

    Ok you got me with the Dionne Warwick joint, her voice at that age was literally flawless. The ony one who came close was Whitney, just crystal clear.It’s a shame though black people never really gave her the props she deserved for having such a voice.

    Anyone who had a heart is actually one of my favorite songs of all time.I have her greatest hits cd and constantly play it while driving,it’s quite worn now so it’s time to get another.That song though just strikes me.
