Soul II Soul Keep On Moving

Soul II Soul — my all-time favorite (and dearest to my heart) British electric soul music group in my life. I was in senior year high-school (ACS Hillingdon, UK) when Soul-II-Soul’s Keep On Movin’ 12-inch and maxi-CD singles were released in the first quarter of 1989 — the year when I bought everything released by them: 7-inch and 12-inch records; maxi-single cassettes and CD’s; and LP vinyl, cassette and CD of Soul-II-Soul first album release Club Classics Vol-1. In 1999, I’ve purchased Soul-II-Soul re-release of the first album which was re-mastered as Club Classics Vol-1, 10th Anniversary Edition and included extra/bonus tracks. The very beautiful Caron Wheeler was featured to do the main vocals on this track. Her soulful voice was so electrifyingly smooth which won her a Grammy.

Keep On Movin’ was my high-school track  ….. it meant a lot to me …… still means a lot to me twenty years later ….. moves me in almost every way ….. and forever remains to be my favorite track in my life.

To all my high-school friends (Gudnyn A, Noel D, Lisa C, Tom K, Tamer, Alex, Fadi, Giselle T, and everybody else), students I’ve known, students I didn’t know, teachers (shout-out to you Rich Hein), staff, headmaster (Mr. Duncan) … including all names I didn’t mention …… I dedicate this post + Soul II Soul tracks to you all :)

Michael Jackson Instrumental Collection

I got this CD in 1990 or 1991. It’s a Japanese import … instrumental versions of selected Michael Jackson tracks. Since today/tonight is Halloween, I’ve decided to share the instrumental version of Thriller. So many other elements can he heard in this one, which otherwise weren’t as audible when buried under so many layers of vocals. There’s something new to get out of this instrumental than the vocal version. Listen to both and make comparisons.

And of course, why not watch the full-length 14-minute version of Thriller music video in HD. At this video’s 07:16 mark in the timeline … MJ & Zombie Crew start doing their dance moves to Thriller’s breakdown groove … gives me the goose bumps … I jizz in my pants. It is Halloweekend after all — and Thriller still remains to be one of the best music videos of all time, terrorizing your neighborhood. This is the Michael Jackson I once knew.
