Happy OSF!  I’m combining Old School Friday & Black Music Month.  Today’s OSF theme is “Keep It In the Family.”  Head on over to Marva’s site to view the other OSF participants.


At some point you’ve heard about the legal troubles of various family members, but DeBarge had three gold albums in the 80s.


I Like It

Man, the (apparent) unraveling of this talented family makes me sad. I hope its members can get it back together–in their personal lives if not their professional music lives.

Happy OSF!

I did DeBarge too for one choice, but a different song. Noticed you had pics of NOLA Brass Bands and video below. Were you here recently or are you a resident?

Happy OSF!

I’m originally from New Orleans, but I live in Maryland now.

I was wondering when I was gonna run across somebody who called out DeBarge! I confess I wasn’t a huge fan back in the day, but you gotta give props where they’re due, and three gold albums pretty much tells the tale. They definitely knew what formula to use to crank out the hits, and that ain’t easy.

Happy OSF, and thanks much for dropping by The D Spot earlier.

DeBarge is popular this OSF, which is fine since they made some great music. I’m a huge fan.

Happy OSF

Great choice!

Does marriage count as family?? LOL. DeBarge is a good pick then!

I went with music from my own family: Heart and Soul – A musical family thread for over 40 years
