    Kiande, you have excellent taste in music. I was just listening to Daryl Coley's "When Sunday Comes" this past weekend.

    I don't think we talk about Teena Marie enough around here. She recorded...

    And money is not a motivation for her? Not even in part? Her grandkids are already set for life?

    Interesting. So you think Ross has no financial motivation for performing? I wouldn't have guessed she still enjoys it, or that enjoyment would be her primary motivation for performing. She has done...

    OK. I thought she was a bigger touring act in the 70s but I missed her 80s "huge arena" period. By the time I started to see her regularly -- starting in late 80s -- she was playing concert halls and...

    I don't see Ross performing in small theaters in small towns if she has a net worth of $250 million. She'd be retired like Tina Turner or she'd stick to really high profile occasional gigs like...

    I think all those figures are off.

    I would be very surprised if Ross had a $250mil net worth. She doesn't write songs and hasn't sold platinum since 1980.

    That made me cringe. I am not sure why Hudson invoked Flo during that speech but it made the connection between the movie and The Supremes seem real and intentional. A disservice to all involved.

    Yes, Mary worked best when the song was slow and/or sultry. Scherrie was much better suited for high-pitched, uptempo songs. Mary's lead muted the energy of this performance.

    Why did I think...

    If Marv were not here to be the villain and revile Ross we'd be bored to tears talking about how fabulous she looks/sounds/acts/is.

    "Classy" is a great word for this collection. I think "Too Shy To Say" and "Come In From The Rain" are two of the best ballads of her career. "Top of the World" is one of my favorites although I can...

    One of Smokey's classic compositions, recorded by The Marvelettes. Probably his most covered song ever. Still, this is the iconic version by which all others are measured.

    "Change of Heart" really does sound like an outtake from Olivia Newton-John's "Physical" album 10 years earlier in 1980. And that's no shade on ONJ because she's fabulous. But I agree there was no...

    His songs have a sweep and grandeur that suits Ross perfectly. She could remake any number of his songs and she would sound wonderful.

    So many lovely songs in his catalogue. It is a mystery to me...
