by vivrant thang on old school friday

Great theme this week with far too many possibilities.

I could have gone with some classic grinding under the red light in the basement tunes like “Break Up To Make Up” by The Stylistics  and  “Kiss and Say Goodbye” by the Manhattans.

I know Mary’s entire “My Life” album got me through some thangs.

Can’t forget the ultimate break up song  with those unforgettable lyrics:

You gotta get on outta here with that alley-cat-coat-wearing, punch-bucket-shoe-wearing crumbcake I saw you with. Cause you dismissed!
That’s right, Silly rabbit, tricks are made for kids, don’t you know that.
You without me is like corn flakes without the milk!
This is my world. You’re just a squirrel trying to get a nut!
Now get on outta here.
Don’t touch that coat…

Oran “Juice” Jones, “The Rain”

Still hilarious over 20 years later.

I decided to consult my top songs list and came up with two of my personal faves, “Before I Let Go” by Blackstreet and “Goodbye Love,” by Guy. I guess I’m kind of nostalgic for the return of the group.

Before I Let Go (check out young tenderoni Omar Epps and Shari Headley in the video)

Goodbye Love (I MISS Guy)

Hope you enjoyed my picks today. The party is far from over! Check out the offerings from the other Old School Friday participants.
