I Don't Wanna Leave You

I Don't Wanna Leave You

by Debbie Taylor

Well, it's time for the last pick on my favourite music site for the last ~3 years, #TIMJ #ThisIsMyJam. And although many of the lyrics don't really fit, I couldn't resist choosing this track from 1975, as the title says it all. Thanks for sharing your favourite tracks with me, and for all your great comments. Farewell my friends.

Stomp!

Stomp!

by The Brothers Johnson

This came on the car radio earlier, and it seemed to fit my happy mood! I like the backing vocals - they remind me of those in George Benson's Give Me The Night, and both tracks are from 1980.

Goodbye Song

Goodbye Song

by Vaneese & Carolyn

This Is My Jam is effectively closing, so I thought I'd post this song. It's driven me crazy when I've found many choices blocked by copyright - but still allowed on YouTube. But I'll miss all the people, the comments and interactions, as well as discovering new music. I've been here since December 2012, and music on here has seen me through the worst period of my life - when I my wife died in June 2013. #TIMJ #goodbye #missyouall

Aiming At Your Heart

Aiming At Your Heart

In 1992, I contacted a local radio station and asked them to dedicate a song to my wife, who died in 2013 aged 45. The DJ made a pretty good choice - this is the song. It always takes me back to that time

This is the title track of an album that was released in 1995, and it still sends a shiver down my spine. (I much prefer the album version to the other mixes. Unfortunately, this one has been trimmed down by a minute - but it's the best I could find online.)
