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.

    Donnie is classic. His version truly is the one that gets it going. It is officially Christmas when you hear that playing on the radio.And I love Charlie Brown Christmas. Watch it every year.

    Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas” and the Charlie Brown song are the anthems for the Christmas season. I love them both. I like Otis Redding as well. Happy OSF!

    Regina,I am a huge Peanuts fan and every year I watch A Charlie Brown Christmas and I have no kids. I posted music from A Charlie Brown Christmas as well.Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas” puts me in the decorated and shopping mood. *Why come* Mamma don’t like Otis?Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    This is the first time I ever heard of anyone not liking Otis Redding! You have some classics here. It’s not Christmas until I hear Donnie Hathaway 🙂 Happy Holidays to you!

    Otis is one of the best. And Christmas isn’t Christmas without Charlie Brown.

    You played all of the hits. How can your mother not like Otis Redding, Good lord, I love him. I love this song!Christmas just isn’t Christmas without Donny. Donny sets it off, when I hear this song instantly it’s Christmas. I don’t care if it’s June or July. We watched This Christmas the movie last night, cheesy, not so great, but worth while. Chris Brown’s version can’t touch Donny’s.Merry Christmas Charlie Brown. This is the best, I just press repeat and let it play. This cartoon is the only Christmas special that tells you what Christmas is about, “Behold, I bring you tidings o great joy, which shall be to all my people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ, the Lord.”Yeah this was so fun. All of these songs are played in my house every Christmas no matter what.Sorry I have been MIA, but I hope you have a blessed, wonderful Christmas with your beautiful family. Merry Christ-mas!

    I love Donnie. I tell you when he teamed up with Roberta, they made magic. No, you didn’t go there and feature my man C.B. (Charlie Brown)..lolThe blockhead boy is the BOMB BABY!HAVE A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY!

    I don’t think you can mention Chris Brown’s name in the same sentence. As Donny Hathaway. I think Christmas Time Is Here is in my top 5 favorite Christmas Songs…and I too run to the TV when its on…I always wanted my own Snoopy!Merry Christmas to you, Ms. Regina…and your beautiful family!

    Not to take anything from Donny, but I absolutely love Otis Redding. And I see you pulled out all the stops with Charlie Brown. LOL They had great music on that show.
