musicchallenge – Oldies – The Supremes

Hello!


Wow, long time ago since my last music post. I thought about not writing or making too much in one post but still try to get all of my cds this year. There are so many more to show. My collection has about 500 Cds (I’d counted them but got some new)

 

Oh, wow. I love this song so much. It was covered serveral times (by Boyzone – Ronan Keating, Phil Collins) but this is such a chilly and smooth version. It has the motown in it but with a goosebumbs feeling.

Pop, Soul, R’n”B

My Best of CD has a lovely German version

 

I guess that other countries has their own version.

Where did our love go.

 

This Soul Legend Best of The Supremes and Diana Ross has every hit single. I really enjoy listening to this CD while I dream, read or write. It’s so sweet and lovely.

I love Diana Ross’ voice. She was Michael Jacksons best friend.

The band made music from 1959 til 1977 together.

The Beatles

 

 

 

 

 

Hello!

Finally I’m going on with my music challenge.

This is part of my sixties collection.

I’m a huge fan of The Beatles. I know it doesn’t seems like, otherwise I would have more CDs but they aren’t easy to find or totally expansive – which is, of cause – right because they are heroes!

When I’m listening to their music, I always want to sing, dance and having fun.

 

Or I want to cry and enjoy a little silence.

My favourite song is

 

beatles

 

My love for that band started when I was a kid. At the beginning of the 90s a new version of ‘Yellow Submarine” came out and I thought: “That’s pretty cool”. I didn’t know that it was mostly about drugs and stuff but I found out who this band was.

 

Once a fan, always a fan.

When I was in school one of my teachers loved that band too and he gave me a music cassette with all the amazing songs. I guess I still have this MC somewhere.

It was cool to talk with a teacher about music.

Anyway. My sister is a fan too. Which was always good because sharing a room and don’t having the same taste in music would be a problem.

John Lennon:

October, 9th 1940 – December, 8th 1980

I know that it was before my time but to know that he died in such a tragic way is still a shock.

He was so young, had a family and was the icon of a whole generation and far beyond.

Lennon wrote most of the song.

George Harrison

February, 25th 1943 – November 29th 2001.

It was a shock when he died because of cancer.

Richard Henry Parkin Starkey alias Ringo Starr was born July, 7th 1940.

He is one of the most amazing drummer in music-history.

SIR  (James) Paul McCartney was born June 18th, 1942.

Paul McCartney is amazing! I totally love his voice

 

I don’t like Rihanna and Kayne West but this project shows that he is still totally popular.

Next month a new CD is coming out:

When I take a look about the genre, it seems that this record could be something special. It’s listed in Jazz, Rock and Pop.

no the beatles paul mccartney excuse me

music the beatles

The Beatles were the first boyband the girls just screamed for and cried (and had some daydreams 😉 It was the time when girls found out about music. Different to Elvis. The fab four were sweet, sexy and funny.  Without their music the world wouldn’t be the same.

Search peace imagine john lennon beatles images

beatles, colors, imagine, love, music, peace - image #99658 on Favim ...

Sometimes I think the world needs more of John Lennons “Imagine”. More of the hope and trust.

 

Have to say goodbye for now. Maybe I’ll write a new post about that amazing band soon. They deserve all the love they get.

I’m totally proud to be a fan of them since 1994 ➡ when Yellow Submarine was rereleased for their anthology.

Maybe even earlier but this is what I remember. I was nine years old.

 

#3 Oldies -> MOTOWN <- Okay, it's not really oldies but hope it counts ,-)

l’ll post some songs from this wonderful CD.

Motown No.1s https://www.amazon.de/dp/B0001XARA4/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_Wp-5wb0CDCJTS

So you just have to sit, smile, relax and listen. That’s everything you need to know about these music.

 

I love Motown songs. Totally. I love the sound and style.

 

 

I hope you have a good time. 😍💕

 

 

#3 Oldies #2

image

Here I am again. Going to get all of my compilations done today, so I can continue with the bands 😉

 

The next two cds are Rock’n’Roll alben.

i love Rock’n’Roll songs. They always make me wanna dance and smile. Or even cry – it depends 😉

I actually found them many years ago.

Rock’n’Roll Legends

High School Confidential

 

 

Johnny B. Goode is such a brillian song. And if you know the movie “Back to the future” you will never be aible to listen to it without thinking of Marty McFly singing THAT song while playing guitar. This is epic.

 

 

 

 

Good old Rock’n’Roll Times

#3 Oldies #1

image

Hello!

 

Okay, so I’m going to write about Oldies and sixties music.

I’m a huge fan about the music of the 50s and 60s. I have some compilations and of cause CDs by some awesome musicians.

But I don’t want to talk about every song on the CDs. It’s a matter of time, I think but I finally want to go further my project.

 

Lets talk about “The Fab Sixties Volume 3” and “The Fab Sixties Volume 11”

I didn’t find them on amazon but in a small shop.

 

 

Yes, it’s Peggy Sue I first choose. I really love Buddy Holly and have his music on a CD too. He died totally too young!

The Supremes with “You can’t hurry love” is one of my absolutly favourite songs ever. I have a best of album from this amazing band, so I’ll talk more soon about them.
