Weekly Music Video

Sorry this week's post is late. I wasn't feeling well yesterday.

Today's video is for the song (If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want To Be Right by Luther Ingram. Luther was an American singer and songwriter who started making music in the 60s and carried on releasing records until the 80s. His first successful single was My Honey and Me which got to No 55 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in  February 1970. His other songs include Ain't That Loving You (For More Reasons Than One), Be Good To Me Baby and Let's Steal Away To The Hideaway. Luther died in 2007.

(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want To Be Right is Luther's most well known song, it was No 1 on the Billboard Hot R'n'B/Hip Hop Chart and No 3 on the Hot 100 in 1972.  I first heard it years ago in the film A Very Brady Sequel, during the Marcia and Greg scenes, lol. But only the bits that they played. I heard the full song last year I think; when I looked it up on YouTube. It's about a married man having an affair. American singer Millie Jackson also recorded her own version from the perspective of the "other woman". That's good as well. There's another version by country singer Barbara Mandrell but I haven't heard that yet.







Here's the Millie Jackson version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amb0JFw447k

The song had 3 parts and I originally heard the whole thing together but that video seems to have gone now. Here's the second part, The Rap: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-G-UAsJ61Zs

These videos have been uploaded by the record company Ace Records. I can't see a video for the third part currently.

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)


The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)


First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.



So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
