My music playlist for today (August 10, 2012 edition)

The Commodores provided some nice soul.  When they did their “softer” songs, they gave us something good to bring our special lady close to us, giving us a chance to share our “soul” with that person.

The Commodores

They even put some country flavoring into their music on a tune like “Sail On.”  And Lionel Richie ended up writing songs that country stars like Kenny Rogers turned into crossover classics.

Some of those softer tunes got some “raking over” by comedians like Eddie Murphy doing “Buckwheat” singing “Three Times A Lady.”

I know I laughed at that.

The Commodores also knew how to bring the funk, and they could bring it hard enough to get people out on the dance floor.  I know I grabbed my lady not that long ago at a friend’s wedding reception, because I just felt the need to shake it to “Brick House.”

Whether it was soft soul or solid funk, they knew what it took to get people on a dance floor.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
