Five By “O” Artists #atozchallenge #mmmm


A mash-up with Monday’s Music Moves Me!


Real simple post: five by artists whose names start with “O,” first, last or only.

Oliver – “Jean”: The theme from the 1969 movie The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, starring Miss McGonigal Maggie Smith.

Olivia Newton-John – “I Honestly Love You”: her 1974 hit, leaving us teenaged boys a little dreamy-eyed…

Ottmar Liebert – “Barcelona Nights”: Haven’t heard much from him lately, but he was popular on all the smooth jazz/New Age stations in the 1990’s. First track off his 1989 album Nouveau Flamenco, which doesn’t have a lot of flamenco music on it.

The O’Kaysions – “Girl Watcher”: Some blue-eyed soul from Wilson, NC. This not-terribly-PC song by 2016 standards was #5 on the Pop chart and #6 on the R&B chart in 1968.

Billy Ocean – “Caribbean Queen”: Considered the top R&B artist in the UK in the early to mid Eighties, this reached #1 in the US and the UK in 1984.

And that’s it for Monday’s Music Moves Me and for the letter “O”!

  1. Olivia Newton John… what a trip down memory lane. "I Honestly Love You" was the theme song for one of our high school proms. I went to one of her concerts back in the day, and that says a lot because there are very few musical artists I would fight a crowd to see.
