    Mary Jane Girls

    Popular Commonly Played Hit: "In My House"

    Uncommonly Rarer Rest: The rest, but I presume that's according from region to region, big city areas, and if region has a decent classic soul / urban station around such. Mine used to, but not anymore, but I still remembered when I first heard "All Night Long" on it, its groove was easily confusable with what a more nineties-like girl group would do, than being ahead of its time in the early eighties.

    And, I remember the first time I listened to "Boys" on an urban mix station, its beat just as melding with the contemporaries it would play during the late nineties, I listened on a bus, brightly smiling at downtown Chicago's sights when I was thirteen.

    Popular Commonly Played Hit: If there is one, depending on region / big cities / decent urban / classic soul station, "There'll Never Be".

    But, there's always the memories. Such as, first hearing "Love Over And Over Again". What captured and continues to capture the most about this one that makes it as special as it was / is, was Bobby DeBarge (was it Bobby?) with his high falsetto pleading climax of "Love Me, Love Me, Love Me, Love Me, Love Me, Love Me, Love Me, Love Me, Love Me, Love Me, Love Me, Love Me, Love Me"....

    I'm not necessarily disagreeing. The Mary Jane Girls were MY GIRLS! They certainly were the best of the bunch in the 80s.

    It was awful wasn't it Lockhartgary? I mean, I was 15 when I first saw it in theater with a group of my buddies. At the end we all got real silent LOL! It really was the all time saddest ending next to "Brian's Song" and "Imitation of Life" in 1959.

    Definitely one of those "unsung" rockers! In structure, "Something About You" creates a tension and drive in the verses, backed by the great Funk Brothers, and the release of that tension on the chorus, "There's something about you, baby. That's makes me keepa lovin' you!"

  31. #131
    Thanks Marv. I play those a lot

  32. #132
    I Can't believe no one has come up with The Spinners 'Bad, Bad Weather' (and even London get's a mention lol)

    Marvin Gaye "That's The Way Love Is" -1969


  35. #135
    Love that Marvin Gaye track - marv.
    Now I also like a bit of Syreeta - Harmour Love


  36. #136
    Syreeta was another one that should have had more hits. Why she didn't is a mystery.

  37. #137
    I only heard this on the radio in New York a couple of times, but it quickly became a favorite. Mary Wilson "Turn Around" from 1996.

    I'm not really familiar with Syreeta's music .... so when you say she should have had more hits ... well, you gotta put out the qualifying music !!!
    Can you provide examples ??

    One of my favorites!~ The Four Tops "Something About You Baby"
    Perfect use of the classic Motown sound !! Top Twenty Pop , Top Ten Soul.

    and this , a NUMBER ONE SONG in 1972 , seems to have all but vanished :


  42. #142
    Sure. For example just about any cut from her 1980 album, "Syreeta" should have been a hit. Here's one for you to sample:


  43. #143
    Also from the 1980 album "Syreeta" "Let Me Be the One". She could give Minnie Riperton a run for her money.......


  44. #144
    Last one for now. Her take on the Chantel's big hit......"He's Gone"

    This one of my favorites from Michael Jackson. The movie kind of sucked but this song was tremendous!

    The Miracles "Do It Baby" from 1974:

    From October 1967, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas "Honey Child"
