Sometimes politics isn’t always protest alone, but reminding humanity that kindness is always needed.
Back in the day, there seemed to be many R&B/pop vocal groups like Riff, Hi-Five, Boyz II Men, and Next. Just as music seems to cycle through genres, reminiscing on the music of that day has me wondering and waiting for the reinvention of these groups sometime soon.
The bass of the song remind me of Londonbeat and the house/dance music of the 1990s. The muted staccato of vocals in the first few bars before the chords get drawn out are definitively catchy.
Having chosen so many playlists from the 1990s on SongPop2, it’s no wonder so many songs like this one have me wondering what ever happened to distinctive voices like the one Morrison has?
The funk. The tempo. The mastering of the vocal tracks. But the lyrics above all else! Love “People’s Champ” by Arkells!
I’ve been playing the game app SongPop mostly for the older music playlists that remind me of music I used to have on cassette tapes but have yet to get a CD or digital copy of. UB40’s music is something I listened to often in my youth. This song is one I can’t forget. The introductory bars are that memorable!
This version of the song highlights the vocals of each singer so beautifully! I like the fact that the instrumental tracks are kept fairly sparse, mixed so that they support the voices that are strong in sentiment. The moment when the blend of harmonies begins… exquisite!
