    Oh dear Walter just got back and I have to go. I didn’t get to listen to all of them. I will be back!

    Happy Birthday!! Why don’t you let a girl know these things? I had to edit my post. But, you’re worth it!

    I am so glad when I follow Sandee and can copy that code. I lost my sheet that has the html on it.

    As stated previously I love all of these but I am in agreement with Ian. I love the 1990 performance of Dusty Springfield!

    Happy MM again! 🙂

    First off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! May you have many, many more, Steve!

    Just love your love song choices without the mention of “love” in the title for today’s theme. My fave pick of your line up today has to be Kool & the Gang’s Cherish, but all of your picks are musiclious – fab selections!

    Thanks for joining us on the virtual dance floor at Monday’s Music Moves Me! Happy V’Day to you & your significant other!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! A little bird told me! Hope it’s the best every just like your songs! Great choices. These were my party days I have to admit. Kool & the gang totally total!!! Dusty Springfield was on the cusp of my party days I was still in school back then, but it carried over. The older Dusty looks like she’s lip syncing doesn’t it! I never heard that song either! Great choices my friend and have a great birthday hanks for taking the time to stop by and joining us!

    Cherish was one of my favorite songs back in the day. I have always liked Kool and the Gang!

    I cannot say I have heard the other singer before but very nice.

    Have a good week and thanks for coming by.
