Sojourner's Place

old school friday...way back in the day!  

Posted by SjP in

Oh Yeah! It's FRIDAY!!! And that means it's time for some old school jamming and having a partay in the blogosphere! This week's theme - the first of 2009 - is "Bloggers' Choice". So, I've decided to post two Old School hits that really take me back to my childhood. When I was a kid, my Aunt would always have the latest 45 and these two are the best. Some of y'all I know are expecting Frankie over here - but - SURPRISE! SURPRISE! I'm doing Gladys and the Marvalettes! Enjoy!

Gladys Knight & the Pips

The Marvalettes

Bet I surprised you with that one by Gene Chandler!!! LOL!!

Mrs. Grapevine and Ms. Marvalus are the creators of this bloggie meme.

Obliged to you for hearing me,
and now old SjP ain't got nothin' more to say...

6 sojourners hollin' back

SjP, You done went way, way, way back in the day to our grade school daze! Duke of Earl? the Marvalettes - Mr. Postman? And you stumped me with Gladys! I don't get stumped often. You've got me reminiscing about those days with my sharkskin irridescent pants, knit or banlon shirts, and quo vadis hair cut. Wow!

QUO VADIS HAIR CUT!!! LOLOL!!! I haven't heard that in years!

The Gladys cut is really my first mememory of pop music. I still love it! ::hey, hey, hey, who yes he did::

Hey... I have that exact same turn-table in my storage unit - still has the stckers on it.
It's funny that we consider "Old School" our parent's music. My nephews call the '80's old school.

@UBJ, that turn table may be worth some money and with the economy being the way it is, well... you know...

80s old school? I guess... LOL

Hi SjP! {waves}

I am not familiar with the Marvelettes....but I do remember that my parents dug Gladys "Midnight Train To Georgia" and "Neither One of Us"...

I love the because half of the time, I haven't been exposed to the tracks that are being presented while everyone else is cruising down memory lane! *LOL*
