These three black men are ingrained in my mind, heart and soul as some of the most prominent entertainers in several generations and particularly my lifetime. Anybody out there that knows about me knows that Rogers Nelson is my all time favorite because of his amazing overall talents. How many artist and entertainers do you know that can Produce, Arrange, Compose and Perform their own album/cd? This man is the epitome of American entrepreneurship in America!

My parents would dance to this song every Saturday morning-my brothers and I looked forward to the dance and giggling in the corner. In fact, they still dance to it today after 52 years of marriage.

Yes Jimmy, I was up late last night enjoying some old school music and artists.

PN, Darryl Hall and John Oates are favorites of mine too since I was a teenager!

Jeffrey Osborne is the voice of LTD (Love Togetherness & Devotion)

@Sheran and Funk; political opposites yet similar regarding taste in music.

Ray Charles and The Ray Charles Singers is music made in heaven.

Hall and Oates and LTD. All time greats.

YOU DON'T KNOW ME by Brother Ray is one of the best songs ever written. Jamie Foxx truly deserved his academy award. Did he nail Ray or what!!

Funkentelecky commented on Tuesday, Oct 08, 2013 at 16:26 PM

Yes indeed, Jimmy!

timeontarget commented on Tuesday, Oct 08, 2013 at 17:05 PM

How about Santana Black Magic Woman?????????????

Sheran will you please post a link?

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Oct 08, 2013 at 18:14 PM

Politics can sometimes make for strange bedfellows. Gee whiz Tot, Black Magic Woman was one of Santana's best records. That and Oh yay Como Vah (sic)

As I alluded to above, here we are, political opposites, in the sense of me, and Funk, Sheran and you, yet in virtual agreement about musical tastes.

Music can and continues to bring people together. I'll try and find the link also.

BTW: Santana proved he's still got it with his collaboration with Michelle(can't remember her last name) in their hit The Game of Love. They performed that song as well as Black Magic Woman at the Super Bowl a few years ago. Great sound.

Music, I've heard it said many times, is the universal language.

There is a rendition of Black Magic Woman on utube which is accompanied by a young Russian belly dancer.

I have it saved on my computer at the shop.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Oct 09, 2013 at 17:58 PM

I will have to go check that one out Tot. I have always appreciated the talents of belly dancing.

Reminds me of the song LITTLE EGYPT by the Coasters back in the day. It went something like this:
"Little Egypt came out struttin wearing nothing but a bow oh wooh oh wooh uh wooh, with a diamond big as Texas on her toe oh wooh uh wooh..." etc, etc.

Funkentelecky commented on Wednesday, Oct 09, 2013 at 18:04 PM

Great song Jimmy, and I hope you by now that the lead guitar is my favorite instrument to listen to. Do you remember the year this hit song hit the airwaves?

JimmyMack commented on Thursday, Oct 10, 2013 at 15:11 PM

Hi Funk: Black Magic Woman was originally written by Peter Green and was performed first by Fleetwood Mac in 68. Santana put it out in 1970 and it became "their" song.

Yes Carlos hits a mean lick.

Funkentelecky commented on Thursday, Oct 10, 2013 at 22:21 PM

Thanks Jimmy for your intuitive and educational response :D

Funkentelecky commented on Thursday, Oct 10, 2013 at 23:05 PM

Jimmy, here’s my favorite hard rock band Van Halen consisting of Eddie and Alex Van Halen, Michael Anthony and David Lee Roth one of the Greatest front man lead singers in Rock History, IMHO!

Check out this combo of Eruption/You Really Got Me. Eddie Van Halen is a Master on the lead guitar in Eruption and feels the energy and excitement from You Really Got Me from David Lee Roth!

JimmyMack commented on Friday, Oct 11, 2013 at 12:07 PM

Thanks Funk. Van Halen nailed it and expanded it to higher greatness than the English Band the Kinks who birthed the song circa 65.

You know it's strange how the world keeps changing Funk. Take this song, You Really Got Me. When it came out in the mid 60's it was mind blowing along with their follow up smash All Day and All of the Night. Not long ago I was in Savannah taking the elevator and the background music (musak) was You Really Got Me by the Kinks. I was thinking, man this place is with it. Immediately after the song finished playing some smooth talking FM radio announcer informed me and the rest of the people in the elevator... "Thanks for listening to the SOFT ROCK sounds of WW W whatever radio station." At that moment I felt older than when I did when Ali lost to Leon Spinks. The world is moving on and much of my frame of reference regarding differing subjects is NOT keeping pace.

Youth, my friend Funk, is INDEED wasted on the young.

sebekm commented on Friday, Oct 11, 2013 at 13:23 PM

Amen.

Funkentelecky commented on Saturday, Oct 12, 2013 at 16:31 PM

Thanks again Jimmy, I'm glad that VH nailed it because I was unaware of the Kinks in 65 at 5 years old. However the Beatles are a different story for me.

Chief, I 2nd that Amen.

Funkentelecky commented on Saturday, Oct 12, 2013 at 20:29 PM

Jimmy here’s a favorite actor of mine that I grew up with that’s very talented and showing his talents dancing while my favorite country and western song and Duo; Brooks n Dunn is doing what they do best!

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, Oct 13, 2013 at 16:10 PM

Great Song! Travolta is good and in this particular movie URBAN COWBOY Debra Winger sizzles. The song by Brooks and Dunn is a killer. What I kinda don't get is that Urban Cowboy came out waaay before Brooks and Dunn were stars. Anyway, Funk, you have stirred my country roots and I am going to go look up Kenny Chesney and his song ALCOHOL. He sang it a while back on Imus in the morning show. Also, did you know Brooks and Dunn's smash MY MARIA was originally written and performed by B.W. Stevenson. back in the day. I believe it was B.W.'s only hit, making him a one hit wonder. I will try and find it.

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, Oct 13, 2013 at 17:14 PM

I mean Alcohol by Brad Paisley!!!!

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, Oct 13, 2013 at 17:22 PM

Here it is Funk. Hope you like it.
