This week I decided to do a form of Musical Progression where one song led me to the next. It all started when I heard "Takin It to the Street" by the Doobie Brothers. I hadn't heard that song in years.
That song made me think of a beautiful duet with Michael McDonald (from the Doobie Brothers) and Patti LaBelle, "On My Own." As I was thinking about Michael McDonald, I was reminded of him singing in the movie Running Scared with Greggory Hines and Billy Crystal. (Billy Crystal trying to be a tough Chicago cop. lol Actually, I thought he was pretty good.)
The theater was PACKED, and we wound up sitting in the front row. You have to understand that my father was NOT a front row kind of guy. He liked to sit towards the back and on the aisle.
Now, I don't know if it was because the whole thing was larger than life being in the front row and all, but I had never laughed so hard in all my life when Eddie Murphy was swinging around in the back of the semi-trailer during the opening chase scene ... to the "Neutron Dance" by the Pointer Sisters.
That got me to thinking about family groups, and the next thing I knew I was playing music by the Bee Gees. Enough talk. It's time for some music! :)
Then, I have no idea why. I started thinking of the Beatles, but Playlist.com doesn't really have any Beatle music, so I went over to Youtube. The first one that crossed my mind was "A Hard Day's Night."
Hope you have enjoyed my musical progression on this episode of Five on Friday. Have a great weekend!
