Janet At The BMAs

Janet Jackson (and her completely natural face ...) received a deserved BMA Icon Award and gave a dynamic performance. Apparently Islam didn't take for her ...

A gross exaggeration of Stand By Me

I was listening to the NBC-10 Philadelphia news broadcast this morning when the news anchor reported to the public how "THE MOTOWN SONG STAND BY ME" was featured in the royal wedding yesterday.

News to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Surpemes- "Come On Boy" A great missed opportunity.

I'm prepared. Anytime one person finds something absolutely beautiful, there is another who finds it absolutely horrible. The Supremes' recording of "Come On Boy" is the "something" that I find absolutely beautiful. Years ago, I've learned to stop questioning why this or that wasn't released at the time, but this song kinda automatically raises the question in my mind every time I listen to it.

Easily, it's one of the most sophisticated of the early Supremes recordings and along with "Your Heart Belongs To Me", was an early revelation of how Diana sounded oh-so-sexy when she was allowed to sing in a lower register. I also love it because it's such an ensemble piece for the group. Florence's voice rings high and clear and Mary's provides a nice warmth- the mix of all three is fantastic.
