FINALLY - Ce Ce Peniston
CeCeFinally1992.jpgAmerican R&B / dance artist Ce Ce Peniston is best remembered for her breakout hit "Finally". The track arrived in 1991 and topped Billboard's Dance Chart. It deals with the long wait for the man of your dreams. The 'love at last' theme is set to a joyous blast of dance beats. She would return to the top of that chart a few more times, with follow-ups that included "We Got A Love Thang" the following year.

With the departure of Paul Cattermole during 2002, the group dropped the 7 in its name. Reunions featuring all 7 members have been occurring since 2014.

YOU HAVEN’T DONE NOTHIN’
“…We are sick & tired of
hearing your song,
telling how you are
gonna change right from wrong. ‘Cause if you really want to hear our views-
you haven’t done nothing...
Stevie Wonder addressed political dissatisfaction on his self-penned 1974 single "You Haven't Done Nothin'". The disc reached #1 in America. Lifted off his 'Fulfillingness' First Finale' album, Wonder takes aim at politicians who perpetruate empty promises without delivering.

Youtube helped Charlie Puth come to the attention of Ellen DeGeneres, who signed the young performer to her label. Born in 1991, the American singer later switched to Atlantic. His debut single was "Marvin Gaye", a duet with Meghan Trainor. He scored a 2nd #1 with "See You Again" (from the 'Furious 7' soundtrack) with Wiz Khalifa. His current single is "Attention".

In 1993, British duo Pet Shop Boys released "Go West". The gay anthem went Top 10 in Europe, Britain, Australia and Japan. It also topped the US Dance Music / Club Play Singles Chart.
The original version of "Go West" was recorded by the American pop/ disco outfit Village People. In 1979, the song was issued as a single. It was also the title track from the group's LP that same year.

(YOU MAKE ME FEEL LIKE) 
A NATURAL WOMAN
“…When my soul was in
 the lost & found,
you came along to claim it.
I didn’t know just what
 was wrong with me,
Till your kiss 
helped me name it...
When Aretha Franklin unleashed the original recording of "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" in 1967, she delivered a soul classic. The instant radio staple was included on her 'Lady Soul' LP. 
Its creation was inspired by a comment made by producer Jerry Wexler to the songwriting couple Carole King and Gerry Goffin. The latter 2 penned a timeless song in response and granted Wexler a co-writing credit.
Aretha's vocal injects a depth of realism into the lyrics, which deal with the salvation found from genuine love. The protagonist was aimless prior to the blossoming of romance. Now, with her partner, she has motivation and purpose. 
King herself covered the song for her mega-selling 1971 album 'Tapestry'. many other artists have since recorded a remake of the R&B hit song.
