Old School Friday

TGIF! Happy Weekend All. This week's meme is "Songs With the Word Heart". I immediately thought of the hard-living, wearing hers on her sleeve singer extraordinaire Janis Joplin. Of course Cry Cry Baby is my favorite but Piece of My Heart is one of her most popular songs. 

Then I thought one video wouldn't be enough and I was scrambling for another song off the top of my head. Who came to mind? Bonnie Raitt of course! I've always admired her behind the scenes work with getting back royalties and benefits for R&B/Blues/Soul artists. She's a class act! When I went to Youtube for the original I found a cover by Alice Smith. So enjoy Have A Heart as well. 

Finally for laughs I had to add the greatest romance theme song ever, the song some of us love to hate in fact, Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On from Titanic. Who didn't get gushy over Leo and Kate? I'm going to add my review of the Estelle show for tomorrow's post. Take care. 

Other meme participants include pjazzypar, Mrs. Grapevine (creator), PPR_Scribe, Shae Shae, Vivrant Thang and many others. Check out their selections too!

Great choices! LOL at Celine Dion. I just can't listen to that song anymore.

Greeting! Yeah I had to add the Dion song since it's the one everyone remembers regardless. Have a great weekend.

Hey Faith -

A little off topic, but I saw you on the podcast but couldn't get the chat room to allow me to comment! Thanks for dropping by and good luck with everything. I liked your comments last week.

Hi Latoya: Thanks for stopping by. I have been reading Racialicious for a little over a year and I admire your work. When you had discussed Black racism months ago I recall my strong reaction to the concept but I agree that it can definitely apply now under particular circumstances, esp with regards to Black women being victimized by it from other Blacks. It was a teachable moment.
