You Play The Songs

Today, I’m trying something different. Today, I want you to drop a song in the comments. Simple and plain. Doesn’t matter what genre or style, originals or covers, fast or slow. Just put a song (or several) in the comments. It will be a mixtape of sorts. Not to mention, some of us used to make mixtapes on cassettes just like the one pictured above.

Go to YouTube, find your song and embed it in the comments. If you need help, once you find your song on video, click share. Next, click embed. Copy the code that shows up and paste in your comment.

I’ll start this off with a video for a song in this post. I’m feeling some old school disco today. So I’m going with Jackie Moore’s classic “This Time Baby,” which was actually a cover of an O’Jays song from 1978. This was one of the great disco classics before the music was pushed underground. I can remember putting this on a cassette for sure. And in those days, you could hear the long versions played on the radio! And this one has great cowbell!

This should get some toes tapping for sure. Your song doesn’t have to be a disco song; pick whatever you want. Go for it! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

  1. Geez…. of all the interesting (to me) songs I know, what to pick? What to pick?

    How about this one….. modern, catchy, unique, and both the song and artist are very under the radar. I would not even know of this song’s existence had it not once been a part of the background muzak at work…

    1. Thanks Susan! I hope you don’t mind, but I took the liberty to swap out the links for your songs and replaced them with the “embed” ones from YouTube, so that people could see them right on the site. Lovely choices, and anytime I can hear “When The Levee Breaks” is always a good time!

  2. Ah Man! I needed this today. There’s some great stuff here but if there’s one song that plucked at my heartstrings for some unknown reason it is “Do the hustle” Can’t remember when I last heard it. Though I have so many favorites across decades, the 80s is where my heart is at. So I’ve chosen two songs, one from Gladys Knight which says all I want to say and then one of those songs that got me to the centre of the circle – Dance with me y’all!! Thanks Tracy – You got the funk yeah!
