Old School Friday: Chaka Khan Chaka Khan Chaka Khan Chaka Khan

Chaka Khan, Chaka Khan, Chaka Khan Chaka Khan!


Yes, today's Old School Friday celebrates one of the greats. Everytime I hear the name Chaka, beyond thoughts of fantabulous red hair and extreme outfits(which unlike Diana Ross didn't frighten me) I tend to think of my favorite movie soundtrack Waiting to Exhale and her contribution. The judges on American Idol would definitely agree that she made the song her own.



Then I burst into a panic attack at how I can limit myself to solely one other choice. So I thought back to what could be considered a college classic: Through the Wire, and how that song could never be without



I'm not even touching the Rufus days.

When Whitney Houston redid "I'm Every Woman," I wasnt allowed to sing it. Apparently I would have corrupted my 7 year old mind.

  1. Nah, it wouldn't have "corrupted" your mind--just made you too "womanish." Nobody would have been able to tell your 7 y.o. sassy behind nothin'! :-) LOLOL

    Happy OSF!

  2. I used to KILL Through the Fire. My mother used to just shake her head whenever it would get to the scream ... er... long note at the end because I was working it out. I used to want Chaka's crazy mane but now I know I would have gone crazy with all that hair. LOL Happy OSF>

    @Hey Shae!
    I still think I could rock with the hair. Leela James is now my hairo even tho I know my hair will never look like hers.

    @RevvyRev
    If you have to pick a theme song thats a pretty solid one to go with. Hope the weekend was fab.
