Because motherhood will never be a perfect science

When the Music Dies…

on April 22, 2016

Michael Jackson
Whitney Houston
Luther Vandross

The legends of my childhood are all passing.
Nothing makes you feel old like hearing this tragic news and realizing your kids don’t even know who they are.
My girls only know of MJ because I had to explain to them that it wasn’t Bruno Mars that they were listening to on the radio one day.
When I was a kid it was my mom crying real tears over Marvin Gaye dying and others that I’d only heard of on the radio but never fully understood their impact on the music of that time. Now here I am trying to explain to my little ones that someone other than Justin Bieber  is an important influence in music and actually paved the way for people like him.
But they won’t get it until they’re older and the oldies/old skool to us become the classics to them.

“PYT…Pretty Young Thing”
“Rock with You”
“Greatest Love of All”
“You Give Good Love”
“Purple Rain”
“When Doves Cry”
“A House is Not a Home”
