    Hey Marv
    belated birthday greetings, I've been chillin'. There is probably a thread here of soulful birthday songs?

  2. #752
    For some reason this song jumped into my head today, certainly can't remember hearing it in the last 20 years or so

    Marv - Happy Belated Birthday. I am having The Empress of Soul singing it for you! All the best to you.

    Sorry I miss your posting on your birthday as this was the time we were going through hurricane Irma.

    Thank you Marv for this wonderful thread. It one of my all time favorites. Can't believe it's been a year.

    Yes, yes, yes RichyP! This one always makes me remember late night partying back in the mid 80s in Philly and in NYC! Her other one, "All and All" takes me back as well.

    Unfortunately, my dancing days were long over by the 80's, other than to embarass my daughter, at family get togethers and weddings.
    We had a guy in our "in crowd" in the 60's tho' I swear he invented break dancing LOL. we would say "he's off again, Let's go to the bar",as people cleared a huge space for him to "get down".
    This was his favourite


  16. #766
    Another dancer from the 60's

    From the Summer of 1968....Marvin and Tammi "You're All I Need to Get By"


  22. #772
    Forty years ago (gulp! LOL!) right around this time of year........The Bee Gees - "How Deep Is Your Love"


  23. #773
    Moving on to the Summer of 1992 and Ms. Mary Wilson's "Walk the Line"


  24. #774
    Moving further to the Fall of 1978 party time with Gene Chandler and "Get Down"


  25. #775
    This one was really hot in the Summer of '74. The Ohio Players and "Skin Tight"

    [QUOTE=marv2;419352]Forty years ago (gulp! LOL!) right around this time of year........The Bee Gees - "How Deep Is Your Love"

    After recently posting songs from Donnie Elbert and The Newbeats, this is going to sound ridiculous, but I have never taken to the Bee Gees, their pitch is way too high and nasal for me. Having said that, I am in awe of some of their extremely soulful songwriting.

    Al Green How can you mend a broken heart for example



    Teddy Pendergrass also did a superb vocal job on this, (even from his wheelchair) but I feel it was over produced.. too many synthesisers!

  27. #777
    Another Bee Gee composition, one I believe was destined for Mr Pitiful himself, had he lived




    Barry Gibbs work with Barbra Streisand and Dionne Warwick also produced some great stuff

    Here's one that is older than me, just. First a little story, my mother was quite an accomplished pianist, in a British pub sort of way, and my father could hold a note, when he had had one or two beers (nether of these talents came thro' to me genetically)
    I was four years old at a family gathering in the childrens room of a local pub and even at that age I recall my father accompanied on piano by my mother, singing this



    He also would sing Woody Hermans Who Dat Up Dere to me as a lullabye and I would chuckle myself to sleep. He later recounted to me, I can't remember that.

    Legendary! I once argued with my Dad that this was the definitive version by Al Green.

    I understand what you mean RichyP. They were awesome songwriters. I did like a lot of their mid-70s output between 1975-78.

    Mel & Tim......"Backfield In Motion" from the Fall of 1969:


  32. #782
    Winter 1969-70 brought us "When You Get Right Down To It" by The DELFONICS:


  33. #783
    It's September 1963 and on the radio is.......The Jaynetts - "Sally Go Round the Roses"


  34. #784
    Sticking around 1963 for a moment. Check out Major Lance and "Monkey Time":

    Thanks Marv! Love this song. I have actually never looked for a video on this. (Plus, you got me groovin' in my seat at work). Lol

    I like the "Old Skool" theme you guys have got going here

    Try this one from 1960




    Check out Ben E King, and Jackie Edwards covers as well

  40. #790
    And just too show I did move with the times (a little) 1976 I think?

    Don't forget that Tony Orlando and Dawn did a brilliant cover of this that became a big hit in 1975!

    This wasn't released as a single but it is one of the most Soulful, funkiest things I ever heard. From the motion picture soundtrack to "Car Wash"

    This has to be one of the most iconic basslines in dance music. I'd include Sly Dunbar's "Pull Up To The Bumper" as well. Both are so simple and rhythmically perfect.

    Here's a belly rubbing classic:

    I insist the '70s are underappreciated. Before R&B morphed into the blandness of disco, it went to another level of soul music. Nothing like it has been recorded since. Love this tune:

  47. #797
    The Isley Brothers' run on T-Neck was filled with unprecedented hits. I remember all of their hits (Mom and Dad had most of them on 45; remember all of the "Part 1" and "Part 2" A and B sides?) but never considered them very much until decades later. Now, all of those songs are among my favorites. Only Cameo in the '80s and '90s had a catalog like that. In my mind anyway.

  48. #798
    I haven't heard this since my brother wore it out on our old console back in high school.

  49. #799
    Dayton had so many great outfits. Sun is forgotten about when discussing the city's great bands. After the Ohio Players, Zapp, Heatwave, Lakeside, and Slave, you kind of run out of time and forget groups like Sun. That's a shame.

  50. #800
    Here's the other great song of of Sun's debut:
