Wow! who thinks of this stuff? this is hilarious..these guys did a great job..lol @ 29 secs
I use to love this song! I Wish - Skee lo
I Could Never Love Another - The Temptations
Such a beautifully, BEAUTIFULLY written song. Its hard to find stuff like this nowadays. David Ruffin sings this with so much soul. It was the final song written by Roger Penzabene, and final song to feature Ruffin as the lead.
So who has recently developed an affinity for Latin music?
Guilty as charged!
That would be me! All thanks to a desire to embrace new culture, and my beautiful spanish friends. I have been told that the best way to learn a new language is to:
1. Love the people
2. Love the FOOD!
However, I have to throw in a wildcard by saying loving the culture and music goes a VERY long way. On that note, I’d like to introduce…
The Buena Vista Social Club Album.
Back in the 1940’s in Havana, Cuba, there was a popular members only club that many musicians played music and held dances. In the 1990s, nearly 50 years after the club was closed, it inspired a recording made by Cuban musician Juan de Marcos González and American guitarist Ry Cooder with traditional Cuban musicians, some of whom were veterans who had performed at the club during the height of its popularity. (Shout of to Wikipedia for the background)
This outstanding album kicks you out of your element if you are willing to take on the adventure. Great salsa music, and might I add how great it is to cook to. (Yes, when cooking different types of food, i.e. Jamacian, Asian, Italian, and Mexican; it definitely adds to the ambiance by having background music to support your theme)
Anywho, the whole album is definitely worth every bit of 12 dollars in my opinion. Fav’s are: “Candela”, “De Camino a la Vereda”, and “Dos Gardinas”
So, if your up to checking out something a lil different, then I highly recommend this. If you have already heard or have this album and I’m just super late (since it did come out in 97’) Then, maybe I’ve given a reason to dust this album off and put it back in the shuffle mix.
I’ll end with one of my favorite songs off the album…Candela!
Cosby show moment of the day!
I love this show!
