Time periods I wish I had lived through

I am going through a little bit of a Soul/Motown period in my music tastes.  So, this week’s time period I wish I had lived through: the late 1950s.  Shout out to the suggestion of Jamie Lidell this evening.  Why?  I found that there are very few songs that wake me up as I am setting my classroom together in the morning.  Some examples:

  • “Love Train” ~ The O’Jays
  • “I’ll Be Around” ~The Spinners
  • “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” ~Diana Ross
  • “War” ~Edwin Starr
  • “I’ll be there” ~ Jackson Five

And, if I am feeling a little new-age:

  • “Don’t Know Why” ~Norah Jones
