Jukebox Saturday Night Entry: Dec. 28th, 2013 "End of Year" Edition


"The Second Time Around" by Shalamar from the group's Big Fun album (1979).

*******


"Never Knew Love Like This Before" by Stephanie Mills from her Sweet Sensation album (1980)

*******


"Excited" by M People that was initially released in 1991 and then re-released on their Northern Soul album (1992)

This features the U.S. video showing the group singing around a Los Angeles pool party, everything all gold-hued and happy.

I remember this song from my early days of going out in D.C. circa 1995. The lead singer of the group then and now* is Heather Small with her smooth, sultry, even occasionally husky voice.

*The group apparently reassembled for its 20th anniversary. As for Small, she had to have vocal chord surgery due to a problem that she explained in this BBC Breakfast interview this past May that included the other two group members as well. She said she had to not speak for six whole weeks.

OK, that's all for now. I am going to try to post my Christmas day pictures tomorrow. If I do not, then my next update may very well not be until New Year's Day.
