Sojourner's Place

old school reunion  

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 "Family Reunion".

My family has never really had a full-scale family reunion. But whenever there is a family gathering of any sort its just like a reunion - and its all good. So, I've selected three cuts this week that each remind me of a member of my family or a family gathering....and its all good!

Dysfunctional as we may be - that's what make us Family. And wouldn't trade 'em for nothing. Too much support...too much encouragement...too much love...and way too many good "reunion" memories.

So, ya'll sit back, listen, and enjoy some tunes from wwwwaaaayyyy bbbbaaaacccckkkk in the day that remind me of my Family!

Happy OSF!

Great job!

Much obliged to all for stopping by and jamming with me for a little family reunion SjP-style. These songs always make me smile and warm my heart as they always remind me of my family.

@ Twin,

Figured you'd get a kick out of these! LOL

@ HG,

So glad you liked them. They certainly are classics.

@ MzBria2U,

Much obliged for stopping by. Please don't be a stranger as the doors are always open at SjP's.

@ PPR_Scribe,

:>)...No these are all 45s. 8-tracks hadn't been invented yet when these came out. But, you know I got some 8-tracks tunes that need dusting off! lol

@ Keith,

Much obliged!

@ soulafrodisiac,

You know they say that the memory is the second thing to go when you getting old. The first? Sorry

@ Rev,

I think Letter Full of Tears is one of my all time favorite songs. Right up there for me with Chaka Khan's Tell Me Something Good. It was recorded in 62 and was their 2nd hit. Every Beat of My Heart was their first.

@ Marva,

Frankie!!!! I'm on my way!Cause I just love me some Frankie!
