Old School Friday: Tonight's The Night

I wonder how many villagers remember their first time? Betty Wright lays out the nervous energy that many had that first time. She tells the story from a sister's point of view, however, I think that the emotions flow on both sides of the gender aisle. Anyhow, enjoy the flow of this powerful soul music...

Shae-Shae - Asante sana! Did it remind you of your first time?

Quick said...

My first time was awkward; lol-You're not the only one to pick Betty for OSF-; she's hot this week!

Villager said...

Quick - I still smile thinking about my first time. It was so good to me that I joined the young lady in a few sessions of Buddhist chanting (she was a practicing Buddhist). The things that young brothers will do for some sunshine...

Villager - sorry to bust in on your "Old School Friday" comments - but, I just ran across an article on the Huffington Post that I know you would want to know about.Seems that not many bloggers have picked up on this story - so I'm sharing this summary my post with you.

The real inspiration behind Rev. Wright's 9/11 sermon was a white man who is a former US Ambassador to Iraq!!! Read the post and tell mainstream media and Fox News - who has known this all the time - to back off! You can see 9 minutes of the sermon which puts everything into context on my site!

Oh yeah...reminded me of my first time:>).

Villager said...

Sojourner - I'll drop by to see the video...

Ms. Marvalus - I guess that somebody else also chose Betty Wright song? Anyhow, we don't need intimate details ... but, feel free to share anything that came to mind as you listened to the song (smile)...

Regina - Dayum ... you're harsh on that first brotha (smile)...

Kat said...

Well...it was by far my first time, but the song makes me think of white wine, strawberries, and whipped cream.

Thanks for a nudge to the happy memory. Peace.

Villager said...

Kat - Strawberries and whip cream are worthy of any time, not just the first time. Anyhow, I was too young for the white wine (smile)...

I picked Betty Wright, too. Great minds think alike, stop by when you have a chance.

This is definitely a classic in my book. I love me some Betty Wright.
