Top 5 This Weekend

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

I know plenty of people enjoy reading play lists, but rather than just peoples' play lists, thought it would be of as much interest if people post their top 5 sounds that they hear played out over a weekend (and where you heard them)

So, take your 'Little Black Books' with you (ok, your phones!) :D and please share with us what made you take notice / or simply enjoyed hearing once again this weekend.

I'll look forward to reading them next week.

Have a great night out wherever you go :wink:

All the best,

Len :thumbsup:

For a rare change, I went to two events this weekend. Not NS dos, but I enjoyed hearing these:

  • Patti Jo - Ain't No Love Lost
  • Mary J. Blige - Before I Let Go
  • Jay King - Good Kinda Lovin
  • Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway - Back Together Again
  • Michael Wycoff - Looking Up To You

The Mary J Blige tune was a really pleasant surprise when I heard it first time - very respectable remake. Haven't made up my mind about Jay King yet...

But I don't get out much :huh:

There's a reason why some tunes are particularly popular. Maybe also explains why some are being picked up by advertisers. 

That Dee Dee Sharp track is a real banger (= I'm liking it a lot at the moment). :thumbup:

Plenty going on this weekend - I've been told I'm camping in my garden with my daughter, so not a lot of soul for me. If my Son joins us he'll be playing 'Slipknot', so not so sure most of you will want my weekend's Top 5 next week :D

Have a great Easter where ever you go.

All the best,

Len :thumbsup:

I remember Rod Allsworth and Jimmy Scriv double decking at Morecambe 2 years ago playing that Moments tune - had the floor packed.
