This evening I find myself in the unusual spot where my wonderful mother – gone many a year now – provides inspiration again, in the unlikeliest of ways. Who knew that some (only some!) of her musical tastes in the 1970s would fill my mind tonight, and give me insight into a doctoral proposal for research on sexuality that I am reading? Yet that is the case. Thank you, Mom.
So, the paean to her.
Barry White, Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up
This YouTube comment made me laugh out loud: “im male and i got pregnant just listening to this”
Isaac Hayes, Shaft
Marvin Gaye, Let’s Get It On
And one for me, after she died, that always brought back memories.
The Commodores, Nightshift
