Flashback Friday - Shalamar - "Night to Remember"

Sticking with the early 80s, here is a little old school track from Shalamar. I LOVE this song. Jody Watley and Howard Hewitt sound great together. The lyrics are sweet and it's fun song to dance to.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

tracie b. - yes it is cheesy...gotta to love the early 80s. I haven't head Downtown Julie Brown's name in ages. I wonder what she is doing now? I think I need to find some of Jody's videos after she went solo.

What I can't get over about the early 80s is how we all had to disco through our daily lives all the time.
;-)

This was a great dance song, though.

They both were so fly. I wanted to be Jody Watley for awhile there. I had so much fun watching her when she was on that reality show Workout.

Hope you have a GREAT Friday! Not too many left here in LA! Whoo hoo!

I remember being so excited to see Jody Watley performing on "Do They Know It's Christmas". I have no idea why. I think we all lost a few brain cells in the 80s. Must have been the Cherry Coke.

Girl, you reached back and blew the dust off THAT one! I wonder what ever happened to both of them.

Buon weekend a te!

jen - Ha. I also noticed that in most of the video from the early 80s women still wore clothes. Today not so much.

Los angelista - I have their Greatest HIts CD. Jody was looking good on Workout. I have only two Fridays left!

linda - ha. The 80s were fun but some of the fashion was horrendous. I can't believe I used to think those get ups were cool.

rose in cali - Anche te. Jody is still recording and Howard is doing theater. I heard a commerical on the radio for show he was staring in here in L.A.

Well, the video wouldn't load for me, so no booty shaking at the moment. I'm liking this Flashback Friday thing, though, and think I'm gonna hop on in next time!

Ms. Atl - you are very welcome.

mental mosaic - Please do! It's fun to see some of these old videos again.

Oh this brings back memories. The eighties were the greatest in terms of music. Even my son, who grew up listening to my records from back then, agrees with that.

Okay, so I've just dated myself. :) And I laugh when I see the clothes now. To me there was an aura of innocence back then that I don't see now. But maybe it's just me.

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

wordtryst - You are right. There was an innocence then. The early 80s were before crack cut through the cities of America.
