"Real Love"-Jody Watley (1989)

It's going to be a brutal I have two mid-terms, a Spanish paper and an Excel assignment due all in one week (kill me softly). So I figure its time to pull out the heavy artillery. It's time to pull out my Jody Watley collection. Nestled in my stash is her killer 1989 sophomore effort, Larger Than Life, which includes the fierce fire of lead off single, "Real Love". This is a song that I often feel is neglected from 80's best of lists as it has all the ingredients of a classic dance jam. It's got a great solid groove, feisty lyrics and it just makes you want to strut around like a damn proud peacock. Or is it just me? Whatevs...Jody is one of my favorite pop n' R&B divas as her material from the 80's and 90's was top notch and geared to kick start any party. Plus I always thought she did much better solo than in Shalamar during the 1970's...So today, I'm donning my big as my head hoop earrings in honor of one wicked sista whose tunes are gonna get me through this week.

This is the extended version of this music video, oooh special!.....I love some of the shots in this vid, very artsy...If I wore a guy's suit, I'd look dumb, but Jody looks fab...loving that feathered church hat, and yes, I'd look stupid if I wore that hat too...
