>Figured since I was dredging up old music, I’d dig deep into the 80’s crate and pull out someone who had a bunch of us shaking our (fairly small) asses to his grooves back in the day.
This multi-talented cat (who wrote, produced, played all the instruments, and sang) had a string of popular synth-heavy dances tunes and soulful ballads—nine hits—during his moment in the sun. You can find the tunes I’m going to include today and more on the cd, The Best of O’Bryan.
What better way spend a Tuesday than to listen to some of the hyper madness that defined his music and get your booty moving in your seat at work, or wherever you’re reading this from. The first tune is called “I’m Freaky.” It actually makes you feel kinda freaky when you listen to it. Or not. Maybe it’s just me. (Click the link below to listen.)
Here’s a snippet of him
performing lip-synching it on Soul Train. (For those who didn’t know, O’Bryan also sang the theme song, “Soul Train’s A-Comin’,” that you hear at the beginning of this clip. The show used that song along with that cartoon train for years.)
I really, really loved this next song, called “Lovelite.” Aaah…the good old days. (Click the link below to listen.)
Here’s the video that goes with it. Be careful. There’s nudity (borderline porn) in this. O’Bryan was a bold one in his time.
And just because it’s expected, I’m throwing in this. Go on. I know some of you know how to do the dance that goes with this. (Click the link below to listen.)
Get your 80’s on, y’all!!!
