    Freestyle Music

    Does anyone here like Freestyle Music or listened to it in the 80's? I love it and still do. Last month a bunch of girlfriends and I saw Stevie B, Expose, Cover Girls, Debbie Deb and Lisa Lisa. It brought back so many great memories.
    I know here in the Bay Area it was huge and in New York and Miami. But Im wondering if anywhere else it was. I think I actually thought that kind of music was bigger than it was because it was so huge in the Bay Area.

    My favorite freestyle jams are and were...

    1. Show Me - Cover Girls

    2. They're Playing Our Song - Trinere

    3. Head to Toe - Lisa Lisa Cult Jam

    4. Can You feel the Beat- Lisa Lisa

    5. Spring Love - Stevie B.

    6. Fantasy Girl - Johnny O

    7. Summer Girls - Dino

    8. Sincerely Yours- Sweet Sensation

    For all you younger one....Nina Sky sampled Lisa Lisa's song "Can You Feel the Beat" in their song.

    What are your fave Freestyle Jams?

    I didn't see this thread the first time around. Freestyle is basically all I listened to in high school. When Napster first became popular, I sat there with my dial-up modem monopolizing my phone line for hours, getting zillions of freestyle songs. Cynthia, Debbie Deb, Trinere, TKA, Johnny O, Coro. I still listen to that playlist whenever I'm in a bad mood and feel like being cheered up. It's funny, though, because since I moved out of NY, nobody I know has ever heard of these artists. Their loss, I guess.

    Amanda! i know, it seems like outside the Bay Area, Miami or New York nobdy has a clue about freestyle.
    I finally found a song I had been looking and looking for...Trinere's "There Playing Our Song" Love it...

    I gotta dance and turn up the music whenever i hear any freestyle. Fortunetly they play it often here in SF.

    I remember when KDON (102.5) in Monterey/Salinas used to put on the freestyle concerts with Stevie B, The Cover Girls, Sweet Sensation, etc...god those were the days!

    I do! I do!!! I was just sorting through my hall closet in preparation for yard sale this spring/putting Christmas stuff away and came across my tape collection. I decided to keep only one case worth of tapes out of two cases plus that I found.. Most, if not all, have been replaced with MP3s or CDs, but I cannot let go of Classics (The Doors, Floyd) my Freestyle Mixes (Glenn Frisha anybody??) or my Freestyle Singles.

    I dated a house/freestyle DJ for 3 years (89-92???) and got to stand on stage with Coro, Johnny O, George Lamond, Lisette Melendez, and countless others... Not TKA though... always a disappointment. We were too young to get into rock clubs or bars but these dance clubs had "teen nights" and we would go to those and/or my boyfriends shows, where we'd be allowed in. I was a funny girl (and still am) in that I'd be wearing a ripped concert T-shirt while I put my makeup and teased my hair (listening to GNR or Metallica, or something) getting ready to go out to the clubs. So funny!

    My faves:

    Play at Your Own Risk -- the best ever
    The Rain (Oran Juice Jones) doesn't really count as freestyle but anyway.
    Without You -- George Lamond
    Can't Let You Go -- Coro
    Please don't Go
    Destiny -- Bettina
    Never Say Never -- Lisette Melendez
    Dreamboy/DreamGirl -- Cynthia/Johnny O
    Put Your Lovin Arms Around Me
    Louder Than Love -- TKA
    Bad of the Heart -- George LaMond
    Poison -- Bell Biv Devoe (me, the middle of the dance floor, getting my freak on)
    Take Me In Your Arms
    Fantasy Girl -- Johnny O

    That's enough for now, hope I have you guys bopping around!!!
