That 80's Groove

All my love is all I have
And my dreams are very special
All my life I've looked for you
And today my dreams come true
You need me and I need you
Love and us is very special
Things you seem to do divine
You looked straight into my eyes
I know our love is meant to be
Cause our souls touched tenderly
Love is life and life is living,
It's very special

Oooh gotta love love Debra Laws. In fact, gotta love the whole 80's groove thing. Pure unadulterated pure sweet musiq.

Mmm. Brings back some memories and then some. Like... Soul Train. If we missed it, we recorded it. Hey!

Sisters, brother and me got our Soul Train vibes ready to groove on down to some sweet 80's smooth groove. Whoever danced the best won a biscuit from our best Auntie. Oh Auntie, didn't you know the Dramani Four would eat the whole packet together anyway regardless of who 'won?!' :)

Sister Sledge were the cream of the crop with the rainbow coloured shoulder padded ensembles that had us crooning about some guy called Frankie...do you remember me? And 'He's The Greatest Dancer' as Mr Will Smith used as a cover for 'Gettin' Jiggy Wit' It'.

Broom, hair brush, toothbrush in hand, we swing and sway and shimmy on across the living room singing along to Atlantic Starrs 'Always' and 'Secret Lovers'. At this point, my bro stays silent and simply looks on. Girl stuff, he muttered.

Mel and Kim - Respectable, Salt and Peppa, (we all know that popular song).

Terence Trent Darby - Wishing Well, Millie Vanilli - Girl You Know It's True.

Al B Sure - Night And Day, Prince - Purple Rain, New Kids on The Block ( Oh come on...they had to squeeze in somewhere, remember The Right Stuff??!).

Teddy Pendergrass - When Somebody Loves You Back, Stephanie Mills - Never Knew Love Like This Before

Kool And The Gang - Celebration!!

Evelyn King - Love Come Down, Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,

The Pointer Sisters - Jump For My Love

Chaka Khan - Ain't Nobody, Diana Ross - Chain Reaction, Deniece Williams - Lets Hear It For The Boy, De La Soul - Me, Myself And I

Wham! - Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

And off course the great MJ - Michael Jackson!

The 80's rocked... and so does a trip down music memory lane.
