Lionel Richie is cool. Especially back in the day when my daddy would blast his records, Lionel Richie was just great! And, you know he a fellow Alabama-ian. But you know what, the Commodores were bada$$! Case in point, "Sail On"....
Sail on is yet another song about moving on from a broken heart.... But the way the guys hooked it up, it becomes something serious! Check out Lionel Richie in the video.. Check out the guy on the guitar and the guy on the bass. (Sigh) The throwback video and it's just a fusion of greatness!!!
The lyrics of Sail On are are simple and in your face , they make you want to laugh because they're so honest! Yes, I'm really hype right now. Yes, I'm really hype about the Commodores. hehehe, I'm an 80s baby (1980) to be exact and I have my daddy's love for great music.
My Pop (stepdad) loves the blues, and my daddy loves old school.
Anyway, I'm sick (coming down with another cold, running a bit of a fever) and about to go to bed-- but I just noticed the link to "Sail On" and "On the Night Shift" on my Firefox favorites toolbar. "Night Shift" is another favorite-- because the Commodores are still wonderful, only missing Lionel Richie. But, notice that the band is still cool. Further, notice that the bass player is still breakin' it down!
I just thought I would post randomly about the Commodores and because it was on my mind. Instead of having a Tokyo moment today, I'm having an Alabama moment. These songs take me back to ponytails, homework, playing outside all day, and smiling faces of family.
Yeah, I guess you could say I'm feeling a little homesick right about now.... These videos make me think of my daddy-- he used to have a cool afro.
