A party on Saturday wasn’t fun unless you brought the slow jams out. After the fast dancing, where you got sweaty, a slow song was just the thing to keep the heart rate up while the feet got a rest. Some of the time, that was when most people took a seat and you saw who the real couples were.
Let’s take a look at some old-school retro slow jams today. Maybe you can whip them out on your significant other later on today.
Between the Sheets – The Isley Brothers
The Isley Brothers knew how to sweet talk a woman with their 1983 hit “Between the Sheets” . Though a little fast for a “slow jam” it still got the blood moving in the right direction with the smooth melody and sexy words.
Sade-Is it a Crime?
Sade, Sade, Sade…there’s more in that one name than anything else. She was the queen of slow jams and quiet storms over the nation. No matter who you were, you could name at least one Sade song.
DeBarge – “All this Love”
My laws, El DeBarge was the one! I saw him on an awards show recently and he still looked good. You can’t tell me that El didn’t bring it with “All This Love”. I still love this song.
The Stylistics – Betcha By Golly Wow
I know I’m reaching way back for this one, but it’s a good one.
Prince- “Do Me Baby”
Yes, Me’lisa Morgan had her version, but it’s Prince’s song. Nuff said.
