Weekly Listening Journal: 1965 to 1980 Part II

"Love To Love You Baby" by Donna Summer

Oh my, I always thought that lyric “I love to love you baby” was just in that Beyoncé song! There is a very sensual vibe to entire song. Donna’s soft delivery of the lyrics definitely set the mood.

"It’s Raining Men" by The Weather Girls

What a fun song! Before “Single Ladies” by Beyoncé, there was “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls! This song feels like a single woman’s anthem. On a side note, I find the correlation between the song title and the group name to be humorous.

"Jolene" by Dolly Parton

If I had to pick one song that highlighted Dolly Parton’s talent, this is the song. Her lyrics paint a wonderful picture of Jolene and you can hear the desperation of whoever Dolly’s voice is portraying. It’s no wonder that The White Stripes covered the song!

"Ain’t No Mountain High Enough" by Diana Ross

Is it pretty sad that I have never heard of this version of the song before? Here we have Diana Ross breaking away from the girl group and embarking on a solo career. Her vocals are incredible as usual!

"I Want To Take You Higher" by Ike & Tina Turner

This song is on fire! I can’t believe I’ve never listened to Tina Turner before! I need to add this song to a playlist for when I need to get pumped up!

"It’s Too Late" by Carole King

"You’re So Vain" by Carly Simon

"Killing Me Softly With His Song" by Roberta Flack

"Danny’s Song" by Anne Murray

"You’re No Good" by Linda Ronstadt

"Turn The Beat Around" by Vicki Sue Robinson
