Gone Gone Gone – Usher, 80s and 90s

Well, I’ve been gone for a looong time! Moved to San Francisco, starting things over here, but the journey never ends…

Right now in music, I’ve been listening to Usher’s latest. “Climax” and “Scream” are already proving to be some of the top songs in Usher’s career, if not best ever in my opinion. His voice has changed so much that myself and others have even questioned who the singer was! His high vocal range and blend from low to high notes are flawless. I like the new hairdo. I wish his style would change. I would think Usher would be an even bigger star if he knew how to evolve into different styles as his predecessor, Michael Jackson has done in his music videos. Usher just has the same shades, jacket and ripped arms… which are fine, but I really believe he has potential to be an even bigger star if he just took that EXTRA step into evolving into different looks and styles to stay current and fresh.

Here’s a look at “Scream” from SNL, a great enough music video IMHO.

I’ve also taken a step back in time, to 90s dance and 80s Pop. Listening to Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven on Earth” and Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer” along with Everything But the Girl’s “Missing”. Ah, these songs make me happy and still are fun.
