“Whatcha see is whatcha get” is something that my uncle said, “While I was a young adolescent playing the PlayStation on the living room floor!” For a long while, I wanted to know exactly what he was talking about! I mean at the time I was studying why people do what they do. I was looking at why girls would pick on me and all I wanted to do was play games. Now before I flash-forward, a little bit of background, I am from Baltimore, Maryland. I am a black aka native American, west-indies, white (German and French), and black! My family has valued entrepreneurship, government, and service to our country as tenants as principals. This is very important because now I am an aspiring Entrepreneur, Father, Investor, Dancer, and Artist.
I'm 50 years old. I remember growing up with so many great songs. My family was made up of my mother , my dad and my grandmother my dad's mom. My uncles and aunts from his family was where I grew up. In my grandmother's house there was always laughter , fun and music. My dad and uncles would sing doowap and mimic the soulful sounds of the miracles, temptations and the intruders. My Aunt and I used to play dress up and sing the Supremes and Diana Ross was our favorite. However, every girl had to play makeup and look like Latoya Jackson. Those days bring me smiles today and the song that brings back all of those great memories is while you were here by Eric Benet. This song is a place to me to relax and renew. To become whole again. My dad was an mechanic he worked for a large corporation when I was a child. My mom was a telephone operator and when they went to work they'd drop me off at my grandmother's house. My aunt and uncles entertained me all day until they arrived to pick me up at night. We listened to the Supremes, Jackson 5, the temptations, Sam Cooke,
When I was in primary school I always said I wanted to become a doctor when I get older. So I said when I was in high school I will study biology and I did.
Okay yes. I hold my hands up. I'm one of these feminists. One of these feminists that doesn't like Bob Dylan. We're a small faction, true, but we are vocal. And way more melodic than Mr Bed Head himself. We had a meeting in a pub off Kings Cross and I was selected to make the case in their behalf. So here goes.
On June 4, 1967, shortly after the launch of the album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” Paul McCartney visited the Saville Theater in London to see and hear American singer-guitarist Jimi Hendrix.
I was flat on my back listening to the Paul Butterfield Blues Band play “In My Own Dream” — thinkin’ I was in heaven but knowin’ I was on the floor of Fillmore West, the near mythical music palace in San Francisco where Rock & Roll ruled, and fans flocked to see and hear bands like the Grateful Dead, Santana, and Credence Clearwater Revival.
Disclaimer: This list is for entertainment purposes only and it not meant to demeans in any way any members' looks or talent. This list is just my opinion and an opinion is not a fact. Also, looks are perceived differently depending on country or culture you grew up with, so it is only normal we have different opinions. All I'm saying is that depending the concept the group comes back with it, a member is bound to make a better fit than the rest of the members. In this list I have included music videos/songs where more that one member sings the song and/or more than one member appears in the music video. I apologize beforehand if I am missing any music video or song that would meet this criteria. Now lest's get started!
Once there was a British rock band in the 1960s, who chose to call themselves The Animals. They are best known for their number one hit single ”The House of the Rising Sun” and other hit songs which included “We’ve Gotta Get Out of This Place”, “It’s My Life” and “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”. The band was simply fantastic and I’m sure there are many of you who have heard their number one hit single played many times as it became incredibly popular and is still played on the radio today.
Disclaimer: This list is for entertainment purposes only. With this list I do not intend to demean or make less of the beauty and talent of the members. This list is just my opinion and an opinion is NOT a fact. Beauty standards are seen differently for everyone. This week's pick is (G)I-DLE. This group is not considered a rookie anymore since they have been promoting for over a year and they have managed to establish a strong fan base already. Their comebacks this year have been received relatively well by fans and in music charts. Of course, we have to wait for the outcome of their 'Lion' comeback a few more days. It is incredible that with very little title tracks, they have won so awards.
