Koco, you know I remember Fats Domino. I damn near remember the Ink Spots. I'll play them on YouTube every now and then. Every now and then, I'll watch BoJangles or black people from the 40's dance on YouTube.
Also, the handsomeness of Billy Ekstein, Harry Belafonte, The Tavares, Johnny Mathis, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Dells, Elvis was handsome when he first appeared on the scene, The BeeGees, Smoky Robinson, etc. Black and White makes no difference to me. Handsome was handsome; singing was singing. I like Barry Manilow, Tony Bennett, Willie Nelson, Liberace, Pavrotti. Have CD's by them all. I doubt there's a tattoo among them, dead or alive. If there was, I didn't see them. I'm not into music where I can't understand a damn word that's sung without "MF" or some other profanity thrown in for good measure. I'm not into that at all!!!!
I can listen to Johnny Mathis sing "Laura" 50 times a day non-stop, no interruptions. I've been listening to him ever since he appeared on the scene in 1956 or so. I have two CD's by Blake Shelton on The Voice, also. Another handsome dude that can sing!!! Let me not forget Chris Stapleton/Justin Timberlake singing "Tennessee Whiskey". I'm a little bit country along with my Soul and I don't apologize. I'm in a country state in the North East. Raised with Doris Day!!!!! I like Liberace right along with Ahmad Jamal.
