Some more of my favorite songs

      In my last post, I put some of my favorite rap songs of all time.  I wanted to put many more but I know no one wants to sit here for an hour listening to music so I only put four.  As I got older, my taste's started to get more varied.  I moved to old school R&B to see where all these rap songs came from.  I found that Juicy was just an Mtume sample and a lot of rap was just sampled from old school songs.  So I really got into old school R&B for a time.

     I tell you, I think the 80's was the best decade for music.  Everything seemed so fresh with the first electronic music coming out.  One of my favorite's was Kraftwerk who has been sampled numerous times of course especially this song...


I love Kraftwerk so much, I am going to put another Kraftwerk song.  This is such a great video.  KrazyBen did a sick ass mashup of this song with Timbaland too.  It is here if you want to check it out. 


I guess those songs aren't really old school R&B so I will put some of my favorites.  I've got to put Juicy Fruit by Mtume, one of the best songs ever and one of my personal favorites.

Another one of my favorites was Double Dutch Bus...



Since I did two Kraftwerk songs, I'll go ahead and post one more old school R&B song.  Another one of my personal favorites is...I'll be a freak-a-zoid come on and wind me up!  I love these old music video's they are a trip to watch nowadays.


Old school R&B is some of the best music ever.  There is so many more songs I could've put.  Anyways, these are some of the songs I got into besides rap.  What are some of your favorite old school songs of all time?

For those of you who wanted to hear some of the songs I made way back when, here is another one.  I put one in my music post from last week which is here if you want to check it out.

  4. I'm a sucker for 80's synths so Kraftwerk is a natural fit for me.
    Hard to say if the 80's were the best, but they were pretty damned good.

  11. I guess old school is relative, I immediately thought of Nina Simone myself, but this stuff works too.

    I do like that one song they did but I didn't like most of their stuff. I really like depeche mode, however.

  16. The old song you posted seems to be a little bit too mixed up. But well seems how old it is, then it could be regarded oldschool already :)
