    So, the anniversary of my grandfathers death is coming up, and he loved this music. He would play it while barbecuing, playing basketball, poker, drinking,everything.
    Im trying to make a mix in honor of him, and im just going to bump it all of next week,[​IMG] the problem is i do not know any artists or the song titles, i just remember thesongs.
    The only songs that really stuck to me are "just my imagination" and a song about a park or bench? sitting at the park? [​IMG] i dont know the title if anyone could help me out would be nice

    thanks NT, and since its NT here goes a pic, lol:

    Listen to your local oldies station and try to google lyrics you hear.

    The song about sitting in a park reminded me of Sunday Afternoon by A Lighter Shade of Brown. Heres that song.

    there are plenty of groups you can look into:

    - the five stairsteps
    - the main ingredient
    - the delfonics
    - black ivory
    - switch
    - the chi lites
    - earth, wind, and fire
    - harold melvin and the blue notes
    - the moments
    - the impressions
    - heatwave
    - the floaters
    - delegation
