soundtrack tunes from the earlier bond movies up until the early 80's

Those Bond soundtracks definitely have some joints on em, it must have been good living in the UK and growing up on those. The Living Daylights by A-Ha is another, and I think Never In Your Wildest Dreams by Tina Turner may be at the end credits of Living Daylights when Tim Dalton is in the pool with that girl.

Phil Collins is great too especially Sussudio. The UK is a scene all it's own for the history of 80's R&B, even til this day the R&B Soul groups coming out are some of the best I can think of.

^My heroes of The 80's

Change - Change of Heart, You Are My Melody, Warm
Alex O'Neal - What Can I Say To Make You Love Me, A Broken Heart Can Mend and many more
Alex & Cherrelle - Saturday Love
Cherrelle - I Didn't Mean To Turn You On
S.O.S. Band - Borrowed Love
Cheryl Lynn - Encore
Human League - Human
Force MD's - Tender Love

LOL@London posting Oran Juice Jones In The Rain song hahahahahahaha. That song is funny especially when he starts talking at the end to a woman. LOL@him saying my first impulse was to run up on you and do a Rambo hahahahahahahaha. Whip out the jammy and bust both of you LOL. I stuck you up for every piece of jewelry i ever bought you LOL. I gave you silk suits, Gucci handbags, blue diamonds. I gave you things you couldn't even pronounce LOL. Silly rabbit. Trix are made for kids. Didn't you know that? LOL. You without me is like Corn Flakes without the milk LOL. He's a funny guy. I got his first album and it sucks but he has a jam on there called Curiosity and that's a tight jam. He talks at the beginning of the song and he's talking to a woman and he's dissing her LOL.


I don't think too many people knew he had a small part in Juice movie with 2Pac, Omar Epps, Samuel Jackson. He was talking to Samuel at the video arcade place that Samuel worked at and him and Samuel was talking about women. Samuel said to him, just because you pour syrup on shit don't make it pancakes, you know what i'm saying hahahahahahahahaha. Samuel said i don't know why you thought the booty was that tough LOL. Oran said that's because she got the snappy nappy dugout LOL.

^My song of the day. It's a nice day outside so I felt the mood to hear this one from the legendary Quincy Jones. He and Patti Austin was one of the artists that made magic when they collaborated.

That album "The Dude" sure is a piece of work, it's got production and synth work by Stevie, Greg Phillinganes, vocal contributions by MJ, and more great guest spots.

I remember Quincy Jones The Dude album. I haven't heard it in a long time. Fatboybrandon, can you post the links to James Ingram's One Hundred Ways song and Patti Austin's Razzamatazz song from The Dude album? I wanna hear those songs because they're my favorites on there. Wunded Fox, thanks for posting the Loose Ends song and Stephanie Mills song. I like those songs. I also like Loose Ends Slow Down and Watching You songs and i like Stephanie Mills Something In The Way You Make Me Feel and The Power Of Love songs. Ya'll remember Bobby Womack's If You Think Your Lonely Now song? That song is funny when he talks at the beginning of the song. He says i hope ya'll don't mind if i talk about this woman of mine. She always talking about i ain't never at home but when i'm there, i'm broke LOL. She always complaining about what her girlfriends got and what she ain't got hahahahahahahahahahaha. She want me to go out and get em for her but baby i can't be at two places at one time LOL. That's a classic song. I got his album The Poet that has If You Think Your Lonely Now. K-Ci of Jodeci did a remake of that song and he did a good job. Bobby is from my hometown Cleveland, Ohio. My grandfather told me that he met Bobby before.

You mean Cyndi Lauper? She's wack. I can't believe you like her LOL.

ha ha, i mean don't get me twisted or anything fam, i ain't got any of her albums or even heard any of them, but the two tunes i have heard of her, 'time after time' & 'girls wanna have fun' were 80's pop tunes that had a little soul to it that i remember as nostalgic

shit that my aunts who used to live wit me & my mum and little brother in the 80's used to rinse out religiously, you get what i'm saying, ha ha and the funny thing is, i wasn't even into them two tunes when i heard them in the 80's, i started appreciating 'time after time' when changing faces remade it, i rechecked the original and as much as l like the changing faces version, i feel the original is much better and is a classic, i heard that 'girls wanna have fun' tune again on a early morning news programme over here and it made me appreciate it aswell, she could sing, nothing special, but her voice has got a little soul to it

and she's a deep older from that inteview she gave on that news programme too, big her up, ha ha

I don't like a lot of female singers because they sing too many love songs and love songs are boring to me. Some love songs i can tolerate but most of them i can't. I like En Vogue's first album Born To Sing and i like a couple of songs on their Funky Divas album. My favorite song by them is Don't Go on their first album. Cindy is the hottest girl in the group. I wanna fuck her LOL. She was Omar Epps woman in Juice movie with 2Pac. Remember Brownstone, SWV, Total? I like Brownstone's Grapevyne and 5 Miles To Empty songs. Lelee who was in SWV is the cutest girl in the group. I like Total's Kissing You song. I think the lead singer Keisha in Total is married to Omar Epps. I can't believe he left hot black actress Sanaa Lathan for her hahahahahahahahaha. She isn't as cute as Sanaa.
