Let's Get Serious - March 2016
You're welcome. Kashif's sound was popular on R&B radio during the early 1980s and mid 1980s. He had an Unsung episode around a year agoThanks for posting that song Duran. I really enjoyed it.
I was listening to the radio while driving home from work today when the host announced the news.
I was like, "Aww man! We've lost another one.
A super talented singer, songwriter and producer, he was responsible for a lot of hit songs.
One of my faves is entitled, So Fine, by Howard Johnson. Along with Jermaine's projects, he also produced songs
for Whitney Houston, Evelyn "Champagne" King and many others.
Rest in peace Michael Jones....aka Kashif.

But when he started "I´ll be There", I just switched channels. I don´t like him singing the songs that were sung by Michael and live through Michael´s voice. :-(
Would have watched his other performance, though, but I missed that one.
Or maybe he is giving a tribute to his little brother and not trying to live through Michael's voice. And let's not forget that Jermaine also sings on I'll Be There.

In the 1971 version of The Beguiled, its noted that Eastwood’s character is manipulating the women who are portrayed as nothing more but crazy and full of lust. Coppola shifts this narrative and leans more towards a “who’s zoomin’ who?” story and unpacks it from the female perspective. It is clear that Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning’s characters are more nuanced and have more control in this version. Zacharek dissects this in her review saying, “If men are manipulators, as many of our mothers have taught us, there’s a dark side to female desire, too. That may be what this sly, elegant picture is really about: The horror that the more we try to control nature, the wilder it grows, like vines spiraling out of control from between our fingers.”
She continues, “Coppola’s version works much better for the way it subtly nudges our sympathies, sometimes in conflicting directions. This Beguiled is neither anti-man nor anti-woman. Both men and women love the thrill of the chase, and each side has plenty to lose.” So basically, she’s saying that everyone in this movie is crazy — which makes for a good movie-going experience.
