    The Lebelles did “Lady Marmalade” the best and Diana Ross & the Supremes really rocked in their day. I love their version of “You Can’t Hurry Love”. I do remember both of these, but as a young child in the late 60s. However I do not remember David Bowie’s “Sound and Vision”.

    Thanks for linking up with Monday’s Music Moves Me, my friend!
