I was watching Tavis Smiley the other night and Babyface was promoting his new album "Playlist". Though there’s not enough of his new songs, Babyface has soulfully rendered some great classics.

I listen to "Shower the People" daily. His rendition of "Fire and Ice" is equally wonderful. When he attempts Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton, he begins to sound a little too forced, but overall, this is a great CD as covers of old favorites.

This is the playlist

Shower the People

Fire & Rain

Not Going Nowhere

Time In a Bottle

Wonderful Tonight

Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door


Soldier Song

Please Come To Boston

  1. I know as of recent he has been branching out and taking risks with his music. I was not able to follow his new musical experience but I commend him for doing what he is currently doing. It takes heart and a lot of courage, something that is lacking in a lot of artists these days. I’ll go get a sample of his songs just to see.  Oh, yeah, I hope you have a safe and festive Thanksgiving. See ya around in spaces!
