My friend Rev. Kelvin Sauls tuned me into the Winan family while at Hiwassee College. Their message of change is needed in times like these.
This song was released in 1961 and in my mind is one of the great oldies in rock and roll history. It is a up tempo song with some awesome storytelling.
Vanessa Williams is a former Miss America and one heck of a singer. This song “The Comfort Zone” speaks to us about being there in a place of personal pleasure and what it can do to you.
With the recent discovery of new planets this song seems to be appropriate for a Friday. Age of Aquarius from The Fifth Dimension is as old as I am so its a great Flashback Friday tune.
Somehow this song is kind of relevant to many. But I think hope is more powerful. From 1986 this is Bruce Hornsby and The Range with “The Way It Is”
In the first and third Star Trek movies produced by JJ Abrams this song by The Beastie Boys is featured. In the future world in which this song is played this music is considered classical. Enjoy this classic from the 1980’s.
