Soulful Saturday - Ashford and Simpson

So this was supposed to be posted last week and I totally slacked on it!! For those of you who dont know, Nickolas Ashford died last week (August 22, 2011). He was one half of Ashford and Simpson and was a very talented songwriter-- think of all those duets by Marvin Gaye and Tami Terrell (yep that was him!)

Most people know Solid (as a rock) as THE Ashford and Simpson song. This 80s gem is great...

RIP, Mr. Ashford. Thank you for your contribution to longstanding love songs.

However, I prefer this lovely selection... masterfully remade by D'Angelo and Erykah Badu. Written by Nick Ashford, this is a true love song.
