Old School Friday "Old Versus New"

Happy Old School Friday Ladies and Gents!!!
Some songs are good but then you find out that the version you know is NOT the original and you are like WOW because the original is AWESOME!! Some originals are superior and it makes me wonder why we do not hear more of the original music... Don't get me wrong I like a good remake as much as the next person BUT I would LOVE to hear more original works OLD & NEW! Remakes are BIG business, and there are SOOOO MANY but I'll just highlight three.
So for today's edition of OLD SCHOOL FRIDAY, I am posting the OLD versus the NEW! YOU BE THE JUDGE ..... Who did it best???

I Do Love You - Billy Stewart

I Do Love You - GQ

Slow Jam - Midnight Starr

Slow Jam - Usher & Monica

If You Don't Know Me By Now - Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes

If You Don't Know Me By Now - Simply Red

Well, there you have it! The OLD versus the NEW! What say you??

Old School Friday "RIP MaLinda Sapp" (REPOST)

Friday is the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend and this crossover into weekend always signifies MUSIC for me!! This is usually an awesome time especially since I LOVE MUSIC! However today's Old School Friday post I am dedicating to Dr. MaLinda Sapp, a licensed psychologist, licensed professional counselor, college professor, as well as manager and wife of 18 years of gospel singer Marvin Sapp. Dr. MaLinda Sapp age 43 died on Thursday (9/9/10) due to complications of colon cancer. I send my sincere condolences and prayers up for the Sapp family. Dr, MaLinda leaves behind a husband, Marvin Sapp and three children, Marvin II (age 16), Mikaila (age 13), and Madisson (age 11).

Marvin Sapp's album "Thirsty" is his best selling solo project to date and gave us the hit song "Never Would Have Made It" and the album has also won Sapp 7 Gospel Stellar Awards. Though I absolutely LOVE the song "NEVER WOULD HAVE MADE IT" and I love the album "Thirsty", that is not my favorite Marvin Sapp song. My favorite from Marvin Sapp is his album "Diary of a Psalmist". If you have never heard the album "Diary of a Psalmist" I suggest you get it, play it, get your cry on, get your praise on and watch God MOVE!
I have lots of Sapp Favorites and below are a few of them all dedicated to DR. MALINDA SAPP ... RIP Dr. MaLinda Sapp, rest well, you will be missed ...

I Need Thee - Marvin Sapp

We Worship You Today - Marvin Sapp

Praise Him In Advance - Marvin Sapp

You Are God Alone - Marvin Sapp

The Best In Me - Marvin Sapp

Be Blessed All & Tell Someone that You LOVE Them!
