Still feeling Slow Wine from Sunday, I was in a real Tony Toni Tone mood for #MusicMonday. Tony Toni Tone mood for me means tunes that embody love, calming, soulful harmonies and my song selections reflect just that…
This Monday, I posted:
Slow Wine by Tony Toni Tone
Let’s Get Down by Tony Toni Tone
Just Me and You by Tony Toni Tone
Voyage to Atlantis by The Isley Brothers
Rapture of Love by Anita Baker
I choose to blip my choices for #MusicMonday so they can all be viewed in one location at any time. You can go to my dj page on Blip.fm to listen to these and all other posts in a playlist. Visit this page throughout the week to get a glimpse into what I’m listening to or check back in on Mondays for my #MusicMonday selections.
by Tony Toni Tone: Slow Wine with an e; not Slow Wind with a d. This song came in my head yesterday and my boyfriend, who had never heard this song, argued me up and down that it was wind and not wine. But, oh no! I knew the word ended in e, although I couldn’t figure out who sang the song. My initial thought was a group, such as Guy, but I was wrong. I searched on YouTube and the results only showed videos for R. Kelly. Negative! Knowing a couple lines of the lyrics, I was thankful for Google. With a few power searches, I was informed that Slow Wine; Slow Wine; If I Could Wine You In My Arms; From Left to Right; Slow Wine was the 90s hit by Tony Toni Tone. My boyfriend had the nerve to say Raphael Saadiq isn’t the lead on the song and that’s the reason he had not heard the song. Only thing I have to say is…I won that bet!
by Tony Toni Tone: I remember this song playing one particular morning when my mom dropped my cousin off at high school, dropped my sister off at middle school, and then dropped me off at elementary school. I don’t think anything special happened that morning, but I definitely remember this song playing. Weird that was 15+ years ago… I won’t tell anybody, but after looking at this “video” I don’t think I have ever seen Boyz in the Hood in its entirety. We’ll keep that on the low! I like this song as it has a classic, mature, soulful sound. These harmonies are great and make me really miss R&B male groups. When will these groups stop hiding and appear to produce some first-class hits?
