Don't Leave Me This Way: Toni Braxton, Teddy Pendergrass, Morris Day And The Time

"YESTERDAY"                        TONI BRAXTON


Toni just turned 43 years old, she continues to be one of the most beautiful women in the world!    This sexy video is from her comeback CD, Pulse, and features Trey Songz and Ron Artest from the L.A. Lakers.    Since Toni's chart topping debut CD in the 90's, she has had a rough stretch:  bankruptcy, her son diagnosed with autism, even Toni was diagnosed with Lupus.   L.A. Reid just signed her to his label and is producing her new CD, I'm hoping she gets back to #1.



"DON'T LEAVE ME THIS WAY"       TEDDY PENDERGRASS

This song is a disco classic that went to #1 for Thelma Houston but Teddy sings the definitive version.    Clocking in at over six minutes, the song builds intensity and you can just feel Teddy's desire to "satisfy the need in me".    Originally recorded as lead singer of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Teddy's deep raspy baritone voice sets the mood for this R&B classic.   After being paralyzed from a car accident, Teddy continued performing until his death last year.  One of the most soulful voices ever.


"GET IT UP"                                THE TIME


From the 1981 debut CD from The Time.   The Minneapolis funk group featured Morris Day, Jesse Johnson, Terry Lewis, Jimmy Jam, a true all-star band.   But on this first album, Prince recorded all of the music, produced the song, sang backup vocals, and the only reason it's credited to The Time is because Morris sang lead vocals.   The Prince guitar solo and a funky bassline makes this one a classic.   TLC covered this one and gave "Get It Up" a whole new twist :)
