Renaldo Domino

Having done my Top 40 songs the other day, I thought I'd pop a few of the lesser known songs up - just in case you're interested. This is a soul rarity from Chicago's Twinight Records.

Renaldo's quite the crooner, but what sets it apart for me is the deep bass backing vocals and the violin driven middle-eight. You don't get that too often...

Top 40 Songs

Mandi on Facebook challenged me to knock up a list of my Top 40 songs. Since we all like a list, I figured I'd share it here too... Not my most considered list, but such a list is always going to exist like the wind...Nonetheless, here goes... (in no particular order)
