old school friday...songs with "heart"  

Posted by SjP in

Oh Yeah! It's FRIDAY!!! And that means it's time for some old school jamming and par-taying in the blogosphere! This week's theme is "Songs With “Heart” ". I'm really hyped about this week's theme even though I had to think about for a minute. Then it came to me! A favorite jam of my Best Half by one of my all-time favorite old school groups.

You all know this song as it was a big hit from the movie The Five Heartbeats. The movie is loosely based on the lives of classic male soul groups including The Dells who served as consultants for the film. They also recorded this song which was their most successful hit of the 1990s. Figured it out yet?

A Heart is a House for Love sung by the Dells!

The Dells, ONE of my all-time faves. I love the music of that era. I had forgotten that they did the music for the movie. Great choice as usual.

Great choice and I knew a few people would post it! That is certainly a classic!!

Hey Sojourner!

This wasn't an easy assignment, so hat's off to you for a great choice! I'd forgotten all about that tune..

Very nice choice...I see this song is popular today!

Nice! I was saying the other day that it is time to dig out the movie for nostalgia's sake. :)

Happy OSF!

* a week later*

I came over to the stie since I just reread Aint I A Woman for the first time in a long time and so many things on this site began making more sense. Then I noticed this and had to pause. I grew up on this movie. Such a great song but I cant help but laugh thinking about Leon and Robert Townsend.

I miss when the networks showed random movies all day saturday.
