Man, I come to this forum looking for some excitement and there's nobody here. So this is my R&B roll call.
Who else here loves R&B music?
Love blues and r&b. I've been around for a lot of years, and have a pretty good collection of music of all sorts.
Here's a name from the past in the r&b field: Clyde McPhatter. Do you remember him? Three of his biggest hits were: Lover Please, A lovers question and A shot of rhythm and blues.
Pop with some of your favorites.
Love my classic R & B and old school soul too. I do think of the two as separate genres--both spring from the blues but R & B is a bit more urban and urbane; soul, more downhome and rural. One of my favorite artists, Solomon Burke, weds both traditions seamlessly in his art, and is still putting out great music today.
Hey i love rnb Brian Mcknight, Daniel Bedding Field, Keith Sweit , Kc n Jo Jo , Avant write to music a lot check out my poems tell me what ya think of my stuff ^^
Hey there , I'm definately a true fan of r&b. My new obsession is michael Lynche ! Every single song impreviewed I love! Check him out! I'm sure youll feel the same!
OOOO me, I am a R&B fan.. Too bad that just don't make "good" R&B music anymore... Everything has to have a club beat or something with the word "eh" in it.. It's terrible but the "old r&b" music is the best.. This makes me think of some singers..
Old Destiny Child
Plus many more...
I'm loving it! You sound just like me looking at your list . I love the 90s so much, this new stuff is packed with AutoTune and it's just disgusting.
I agree with u and liljen, the olskool love songs are about gone, i dont care too much for the new "sex me" songs, theres a few new love songs out here and there, i actually just posted one. Check me out yal & we can vibe 2gether!
I love how you said the " Old Destiny Child". I still rock their " Survivor " album in my car!
R&B...was just listening to some....my fav will also be M Gaye and James Brown...have a few of their 'albums'....yea nothing like the older R&B!
and the Blues too....can't forget the blues...was listening to some Ry Cooder with JL Hooker this a.m....saw JL years ago...he was amazing...
SomewayOuttaHere, If you like blues, try Delbert McClinton, Keb Mo,
Johnny Winter, Roy Buchanan.
Back in the 50's and 60's, Jimmy Smith had an album called "Home cookin", which I liked.
Bill Doggett also had an album with "Honky Tonk", parts one and two on it.
Worth listening to.
just googled Clyde McPhatter.....yup a long time ago...got me thinking about the Supremes and the Temptations....good music!
'Stop in the Name of Love'...I love that song...
I really like Ry Cooders version of "Crossroads".
Jackie Wilson's "Lonely teardrops" is a classic
Sam Cook's "You send me" is great.
The drifters, Solomon Burke, Lou Rawls, Wilson Pickett. Joss stone, The Crests, etc..
Solomon Burke did some of the songs in the movie "Dirty Dancing", like "Cry to me".
There was a movie out a while back, titled the commitments. In that movie they revived songs like "Mustang Sally", Did a decent job on it. I bought the cd.
When reading the cd info on my media library, I sometimes feel that some artists are pigeon holed into just one genre, when they have music that would span many genre's. A classic example is Joe Cocker. On all of my Joe Cocker cds, his music is listed as rock. He definitely is blues and r&b a good share of the time.
Keb Mo should be both blues and r&b.
Delbert McClinton should be blues, r&b and at times country.
What do you think?
yes...you've named quite a few that are amazing artists...
I googled Delbert....I've never listened to him before that I can recall...yes, he defiinitely has the blues influence...listened to 'everytime i roll the dice' and 'going back to louisiana' and then there's his country stuff.
So many artists have been influenced by some of the old blues...lots of R&R musicians...that's why I love R&R so much too...
Check out Delbert's "All there is of me", and "Read me my rights" and "I'm dying fast as I can".
Blues, soul and R&B (old and new) turn out to be my favourite genres of popular music. There are a lot of Hubbers who have similar taste, and have written great Hubs on the music they love.
There's excitement enough!
Mary J.Blige- to me she is the best.
Christina Aguilera- she does pop, but sometimes she sneaks into R¨N¨B
Love theme songs that will live on forever in our hearts and souls. Here are some of the singers of R&B. Barry White, Teddy Pendegrass, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, and Macfadden & Whitehead with their hit single Aint no stopping us now.
JAMES BROWN, STAPLE SINGERS, SAM & DAVE,WILSON PICKETT,MARTHA REEVES,GLADYS KNIGHT,OTIS REDDING,DIANA ROSS,SMOKEY ROBINSON, THE TEMPTATIONS ,SAM COOKE,ARETHA FRANKLIN,JACKIE WILSON,THE FOUR TOPS,MARVIN GAYE,SHARON JONES & THE DAP KINGS,BOOKER T & THE MGS. RAPHAEL SAADIQ THATS MY PLAY LIST.
I love music period, I can associate music with anything,so I definitely feel you. I may construct a hub about this.
Hey! There are so many artists to love!... Luther, Whitney, Brandy, Monica, Alicia Keys, Usher (sick range)... I could go on with the names for days! They all just inspire me so much!
I'm a huge fan of r & b music!!!!! From late 60's to today's r & b, I love it all. I have a large music collection that includes music from Sam Cooke to Musiq Soulchild. I also love to listen to gospel music as well; from traditional gospel artists like Inez Andrews to contemporary gospel artists like Fred Hammond and Kirk Franklin. I also have a few blues included in my collection from ZZ Hill to Bobby "Blue" Bland. I guess you can say that I'm a big time music junkie!!

Its the phoniest genre of music ever! And the worst part about the music is - everybody is always in love or falling out of love with someone. Its always about some hot chick or some hot dude, geez! And all the singers...
