There are some exceptional songs that were either forgotten, or obscure. “Tender Love” is one of those songs! Never heard it, too young?That doesn’t mean we can’t listen and appreciate this song now.The Force MD’s still tour to my knowledge, but many of the original members have passed away. I know Jordan Knight and Alicia Keys have both covered this obscure ballad. It’s ok, to admire the clothing,and curl activator. Please pay attention to the lyrics! Everyone should have a treasured collection of music that gives you that feeling. These men are not telling anyone to get on her knee, have sex because they are famous. This is how a woman should be treated. Some one should come to your house,and treat you with respect and admiration. Some how or another we lost that, but we all deserve that respect.
Andra Day is a blast from the 1940′ s and a breath and glimpse of women who are willing to create their own legacy of rhythm and blues and jazz vocalization. Andra is similar to the Motown sound but is ultimately their own. Her voice also lends a bit of inspiration from Ella Fitzgerald and she is simply beautiful.
