Old School Friday #39 "Birth Year Songs"

Hi There Bloggers!!
You Know What today is… Old School Friday!
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.

The theme for this week is cool for me because yesterday was my 42nd Birthday! So the Theme is…

    I’m loving the Temptations selection. And you are right, Nacy was pushing the envelope. 🙂

    Mini-skirts, go-go boots, hippies, and free love were in in the late 60s. These were my teen years and we idolized the Temptations. The Marvelettes were tops along with Supremes and Martha & the Vandellas.

    Happy Birthday! You can never go wrong with the Temps and although Nancy seems risque, it was all the rage in the 60’s. Happy OSF!

    Happy OSF Regina!These are some fun picks. “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” has to be one of my favorites from the Temps, although it’s hard to name just one favorite with those brothers. And Nancy Sinatra…? Lord, Lord, Lord…And she was doing this back then? Lemme calm down and just say that was a very enjoyable video. Yeah, that’s safe enough.

    Nancy Sinatra was SERIOUS. Perhaps it was her who single handedly gave women that feeling of really WALKIN’ and strutin’ HARD in our boots…lolHappy OSF!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY REGINA!I have never heard Don’t Mess with Bill. This song is something else. Everytime I hear the opening to Ain’t to Proud Too Beg, I get excited, “I Know You Wanna Leave Me, but I refused to let you go”…That was romantic then, but now it sounds a little possessive.These boots, is yet another classic. I loved this song a lot when I was a little girl.

    Happy birthday! You made 3 superb choices this week. I often think “what if?” when it comes to David Ruffin’s departure from The Temptations. Although I like Dennis Edwards, David was in a class all by himself.

    Go head Nancy! I’d like to see somebody remake that song — maybe with a GOGO beat (that D.C. feel).Why is it that I always think of Quentin Tarantino films when I hear this song?Nancy was hot!
