The Tape Deck: Love Said...Let The Music Play

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

I have been in a Shannon mood for the past couple of days now. It's just one of those things. Just from one random listen to "Let The Music Play", I have to listen to the whole album, and then listen to Shannon's two other great albums, Do You Wanna Get Away and Love Goes All The Way. It's like a chain reaction. Her music is just that infectious for me. Perfectly blended pop-funk is what it is.

Shannon is one of those artists in the 80's that was sorta important as she is sometimes dubbed the "Queen of Freestyle". "Let The Music Play" when released in '83, reinvigorated and gave new direction for soul and pop music in the 80's once the residue of Disco washed fully away. Some say Shannon should have had Madonna's career, and she was poised to do so---but we won't get into that, just enjoy the music, which in my bias opinion is essential to anyone's music collection. Thus, let this Tape Deck play....

1. Let The Music Play (1983)

2. Stop The Noise (1985)

3. Let Me See Your Body Move (1985)
