Old School Friday - Who Is The Greatest?


This is the toughest Friday yet! I mean, how do you pick the best of all time? There are just too many ways to go on this theme, but I am going with the person in which Johnny Mathis and BeBe Winans considered the best singer in the world, Gladys Knight. I can't wait to cruise the blogsphere and check out who the rest of the OSF bloggers are choosing. Happy Old School Friday to all and to all a good day!

This meme was developed by Marvalus View and Ms. Grapevine. The rules are simple:

1. Anyone can participate; any music genre
2. Old School is defined as music created before 1999
3. No offensive words allowed, please use edited radio version
4. Post a video of your favorite Old School song to take us back down memory lane
5. Add your name to the meme list so that others can check you out
6. Have fun & don't forget to leave comments for other participants

Yup, she was a Pip. God, I'm sorry. After writing my OSF post I got stuck in corny comments.

Messing with the theme again, you know me gotta live outside the box, break the rules and just generally wreak havoc and let loose the dogs of tunes.

Ms Knight is superb. Her voice is beautiful and so soulful.

No question, Gladys - with her southern, soulful, down-home, gospel... there are too many adjectives to describe her. But she definitely should be considered the best of all time.

Someone last week went with Gladys--you reminded me again why I am often sad to listen to the current crop of female singers. Timeless lady, timeless voice!

Happy OSF!

Happy OSF! Gladys had a serious voice. Is she still with Les Brown?

I invite your blog readers to see my selection as the Greatest of All Times. Can you say 'MJ'!

peace, Villager

Gladys is definitely one of the G.O.A.T.s.

You definitely cannot go wrong with Gladys. No way no how.
Happy OSF!
