How music influences our lives
_I was talking to my close friend Martha last night and we started talking about music. We talked about how it influences our life. Last Sat on air I was playing old school music and everyone was feeling that show. Im not knocking the new generation of music but that shit dont bring tears to ur eyes unless they ass cant sing or rap and you're laughing until tears fall. I grew up going to concerts with my mama when I was like 10 years old. I saw the Isley Brothers, Confunkshun, Luther Vandross, Freddy Jackson, Rolls Royce just to name a few. Those were the days when music was at its best. I was young and I didnt fully understand what they were talking about but I knew what it meant to get out your seats and dance. That was in the 70's.
I also grew up in the era of house parties. They had mad crazy liquor and made the everclear punch with fruit cocktail. My mama was the master at making that shit. Then you had a Dj that spinned the records and had the cassette played on deck. Then hold the old fashioned microphones that they spoke in to. Then everybody would be jamming like hell then then dj would start feeling the crowd and then he would break out with some SugaHill or Grand Master Flash and the crowd would go crazy. Then it would be time for the soul train line. That would be my favorite. Here I was 11 years old in my sunday best dress going down the soul train line dancing my ass off. That was in the early 80's.
Then music started changing and I was tripping at what was happening in this era. We started hearing song that had their won dances. No like the shit the kids are doing now. But let's take a trip down memory lane. There was a lot dances in da mid 80's like da alligator, double dutch, smurf, et, snake, da whoop, cabbage patch and the list goes one. then the music was turned up a notch. real love ballads was popping up everywhere. Then Miami introduced ur to Uncle Luke and everybody got as nasty as they wanna and men were yelling "Hey We Want Some Pussy". Chicks couldnt hold a candle to the chicks in Miami. Then Do Do Brown came on the scene. We embraced these dances and music without a problem. But if your ass was in Jr or Sr high school trying to do some of those dance at a school dance, you were kicked the fuck out with no hesitation. Then dancing on skates became the next phase of growing. up. Ready For The World and Al B Sure came in giving up the love ballards that was causing all the high school girls to be fast in da ass. And we cant forget going to the club clicked up and having dance offs. If you were a female and ur crew won, you have your choice of dick you was chilling with for the night. Men would sit back and look at your moves and they would size up u and ur fuck game. lol
Then Mc Hammer came out and took dancing to a whole new level. Hell I thought Kid n Play had shit on lock. you could see the transition that music was about to embark on. Then R Kelly came out with Public Announcement and fucked up a lot of shit. Everyone had that Vibe and chicks were Honey Love. Music was about to change as we new it. How many people can remember what song on 12 play was there best fucking song? Shit for me it was and still is "Your Body Is calling Me". You play that song and I swear we are fucking. R Kelly could sing any female into instant wetness. Other groups and artist start putting down their signature impressions on everyone. I could go on and on talking about music and how it has changed our live, they way we think and how we fuck our partners.
I think every Sat will be a throw back show so we can pay homage to everyone that has influenced the way music now. If you have any request, please leave me a message or comment with the song you want to hear and any dedications. Its my goal to make sure to make my listeners happy.
