  • The Jacksons-Enjoy Yourself 2:3:24 10.11 PM

    4 FEB. 2024 · Hello! I'm Gail Nobles! Welcome to Multi-Tunes. Enjoy Yourself is a song released as a single in 1976 by the Jacksons. The song featured Michael and Jackie Jackson on lead vocals. The song peaked at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100 songs chart in 1977. On other US charts, it peaked at number two on the Hot Soul Singles chart and number 33 on the National Disco Action top 40 chart. In 1989, it became the group’s first single to be Certified Platinum by the RIAA in the US. In the 70s listening to the song, if people had any worries, it wasn't that noticeable because in those days, I saw people that indeed enjoy themselves dancing when the song first came out. You didn't hear about many club shootings in the 70s. People were too busy dancing and having fun. During the year of 1976 when the single Enjoy Yourself was released, major events include Jimmy Carter defeating incumbent president Gerald Ford in the presidential election of that year, and the Apple Computer company was founded that year by college dropouts Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. 1976 was a good year for the song Enjoy Yourself. The single is credited to Philadelphia songwriters/producers Gamble and Huff. I'm Gail Nobles. Thank you for listening to Multi-Tunes.

  • Glen Campbell-Rhinestone Cowboy 9:26:23 10.07 PM

    27 SEP. 2023 · Music Intro by: Gail Nobles Story by: Gail Nobles When I was a child, I thought country music was made by white people. But I began to notice that black people around me loved some of the country hits in the 70s. I grew up in a world where nobody called music black or white. As I got older, I learned that black people made country music too like Charley Pride and Ray Charles. Growing up, I remember hearing a country song by Glen Campbell titled Rhinestone Cowboy. As a child, I wasn't really into country music in the 70s that much. But I loved the country song Rhinestone Cowboy. Whenever they would advertise songs on television, I would always listen for Rhinestone Cowboy. They of course wouldn't play the song entirely, but when they played the country song on the radio, I knew it was Rhinestone Cowboy thanks to the advertising commercial. They played commercials for songs it seemed a million times a day. There was no way you could forget a song. Back then that was my MTV. Laugh if you want to. Things were different then. Rhinestone Cowboy was released in 1975, as the lead single and title track from his album Rhinestone Cowboy. It enjoyed huge popularity with both country and pop audiences. The single certainly got my attention. I'm Gail Nobles and you’re listening to Multi-Tunes. Tunes that talk.

Tunes that talk. Today we're going to talk about the Pet Shop Boys. An English synth-pop duo formed in London in 1981. Consisting of primary vocalist Neil Tennant and keyboardist Chris Lowe, they have sold more than 50 million records worldwide, and were listed as the most successful duo in UK music history in the 1999 edition of The Guinness Book of Records. Three-time Brit Award winners and six-time Grammy nominees, since 1984 they have achieved 42 top 30 singles, 22 of these being top 10 hits on the UK Singles Chart, including four UK number ones: "West End Girls" (also number one on the US Billboard Hot 100), "It's a Sin", a synth-pop version of "Always on My Mind", and "Heart". They had other hit songs too. My favorite is West End Girls. The song was released twice as a single. The song's lyrics are concerned with class and the pressures of inner-city life which were inspired partly by T. S. Eliot's poem The Waste Land. It was generally well received by contemporary music critics and has been frequently cited as a highlight in the duo's career.

  • I Love You Music & Song 4:17:23 3.35 PM

    17 ABR. 2023 · Song intro by: Gail Nobles Vocals by: Gail Nobles Photos: Public Domain Wikimedia Synth chord music: Samplefocus.com Keyboard strings: Gail Nobles Let’s think back on the days of R&B when we had singers like The Dells & Pattie LaBelle singing “I LOVE YOU”. Those are the days we need to get back to. We need to talk and sing to the tunes that lead us to love. Some say R&B is gone. Well, not many singers are singing “I Love You” anymore. Love is very important. It’s the thing that God made, and he put it into the world. Some have it in the heart and some don’t. But love is what helps make this world go round. Love, affection, and kindness is what makes life worth living. It puts meaning into a song. Without it, music and life is so dead. It brings people together. It helps to bring marriage. When love is brought into music, it helps people to fall in love. What are we doing without it? Are we not living the life of love anymore? Love is the key. Without it being the true message in our songs and in our hearts, it seems we don’t know what true love is for. It seems we don’t know how to stay together. Love is a good thing. It can be a good thing in our songs. It can be a good thing to say more often. I’m Gail Nobles. You’re listening to Multi-Tunes. Tunes that talk.

A Fine Mess came from 1986 album “To Be Continued” released by Motown Records’ Gordy label. Hi! I’m Gail Nobles. “The To Be Continued” album was the third and final album to feature Ali-Ollie Woodson during his first stint with the group. Woodson was best known as the lead singer of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motown act https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Temptations from 1984 to 1986, and from 1988 to 1996. I loved his singing. I loved his singing on the song “A Fine Mess”. Woodson was a good actor with the Temptations in the Fine Mess Video. A Fine mess is a comedy film written and directed by Blake Edwards and Starring Ted Danson and Howie Mandel. The song, “A Fine Mess”, by the Temptations was on the film’s soundtrack. After Paul Williams, Dennis Edwards, David Ruffin, & Eddie Kendricks, Ali-Ollie Woodson was a great lead singer in my opinion. He died in Los Angeles, California on May 30, 2010. It’s a hurtful thing to see our favorite stars die so young. He died at age 58. What A Fine Mess. I miss him. You’re listening to Multi-Tunes. Tunes that talk. Today’s topic: A Fine Mess by the Temptations.

  • The Days of Doo-Wop 2:16:23 9.28 PM

    17 FEB. 2023 · Swinging Boy Harmony: Samplefocus Doo-Wop is a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_genre of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhythm_and_blues music that originated in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African-American communities during the 1940s, mainly in the large cities of the United States, including New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Baltimore, Newark, Detroit, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles. It features vocal group https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmony that carries an engaging melodic line to a simple beat with little or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_cappella https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instrumentation_(music). When I think of Doo-Wop, I think of Frankie Lyman and the Teenagers, “ Why Do Fools Fall In Love”, The Flamingos - “ I Only Have Eyes For You”, and “Earth Angel” by the Penguins. It was in the 70s when I learned about Doo-Wop because of the American rock and roll Doo-Wop cover group Sha Na Na. But when I was a little girl watching their variety series that ran from 1977 to 1981, I called them Sha Na Na Na. The group’s name was taken from a series of nonesense syllables (Sha Na Na Na Sha Na Na Na Na) in the song “Get a Job” originally recorded by the Silhouettes. The song that I remember Sha Na Na singing most is “Goodnight Sweetheart”. That’s the song they would sing when they ended their show. That was my day of Doo-Wop in the 70s. Doo-Wop is fun. I love the harmonic singing and nonsense syllables. Gaining popularity in the 1950s, Doo-Wop was “artistically and commercially viable" until the early 1960s, but continued to influence performers in other genres.
