    How funny, today at work me and some co-workers were on youtube looking up old school songs. It started with me wanted to hear Tina Turner’s Fool in Love. Then we went to M.J. And Paul McCarty’s Say Say Say, then we went to Reva Jackson’s Centipede (I’m sure that is spelled wrong). Then it was on to LaToya’s Hearts Don’t Lie. If one of troops had not needed me it would have went own and own.

    Regina these are great choices, that I never would have thought of. This is what singing is about sometimes. Keeping it simple and smooth.
