Flashy Flashback Friday

Happy Friday y'all!

I know I have stated here on many occasions that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE 70's music.
Particularly disco/funk/RB.
It makes me feel happy.

I heard this at work last night and I just HAD to share.
It's Elton John's "Mama can't buy you love".
Now, he released this as part of his 'comeback' in 1979.
(He didn't do so well after his 1976 Rolling Stone interview where he announced he was bisexual)

It may not be one his best, but it's one of my faves.
It also doesn't hurt that The Spinners sang backup AND played the horns on this delicious track.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend .... I shall be cleaning and hopefully painting.
(yay me)

Enjoy .....

I have this on vinyl (the 'B' side of the 12" of 'Are You Ready For Love')I can't believe this is 32 years old. (Man, I bought this when it came out, now I feel old!)

Have a great weekend! :¬)

Love this song. I saw him in the early 1980's... he wasn't "young" Elton, but still a fabulous show.

have a great weekend. Painting is good but not in heat. :-(

Map: I wish I had it on vinyl!
You're only as old as you feel. ;D

Boxer: I've seen him twice; once on his own and the second time with Billy Joel.
He wasn't the 'young' Elton either, but he still belted it out! :)

Painting isn't fun in the heat .... thank god for AC! :)


Have a great weekend y'all!
