More Music or is it Part Two

My Cucu Wanjiku’s mum who I am named after was well known for her beauty, her lovely singing voice and her beauty. She enjoyed music and dancing and maybe I have that trait of enjoying the music- I don’t know about the beauty part!!! This particular blog is definely going to age me but it is my nostalgia trip.

This is a continuation of the music theme when Annie Lennox sang “Sweet Dreams are made of this” and then the duet with Aretha Franklin “Sisters are doing it for themselves” talk of goosebumps moments. Just nearly 7 or 8 years old and my big sister used to go to a teenage club and the hits were Cliff Richard, “The Young Ones” and “ Summer Holiday”, the Beatles with “ Hard days night” and Elvis Presley “ Suspicious Minds”

The Soul phenomenon that is James Brown and dancing to soul music from the likes of Wilson Pickett- “Young Gifted and Black” cannot for the life of me remember the artistes. Then there were the Staples Singers” I will take you there”. Stevie Wonder’s “ Superstition” was another great moment- his music was inspirational- I remember singing to a certain niece “ Is’t she lovely” and now they are grown.

In boarding school, Barry White was another favourite and his music came blaring out of the Junior Common Room- Isaac Hayes looked nude though I am assured it is his bald tome that made him appear that way and his music was according to some risque. Funk was around at this time. Millie Jackson’s “ If loving you is wrong” and Minnie Ripperton’s “Loving you” . I have not forgotten the Jackson Five with little Micahael bellting out “ABC” and getting copies of Right On magazine and some girlie posters on the wall. Osibisa with “Sunshine day” and Manu Dibango- oh this nostalgia trip is good for the soul. I remember dancing in some boys sweaty arms and in particular the slow numbers where you have been clutched and held in all the wrong places. Yuck …..
