70's Soul Jam
The Stylistics performing "You Are Everything" live
- The sound: smoother than silk sheets soaked in clarified butter
- The look: sharp, often with matching suits
- The school: old
- Philly soul hits The Stylistics sang that are capable of soothing a jittery rabbit: "Betcha by Golly, Wow," "You Are Everything"
- Where else you've heard "Betcha by Golly, Wow": covered by Prince
- Number of gold singles The Stylistics gathered: five, including one for "You Make Me Feel Brand New"
- Brenton Wood songs you've sung to yourself, but probably didn't know the titles of: "Gimme Little Sign," "The Oogum Boogum Song"
- Why you didn't know the titles: because he sings "just gimme some kind of sign, girl," and neither oogum nor boogum are real words
- Peaches and Herb song that everybody knows by heart: "Reunited"
- Bloodstone hits that make you want to slow dance with anything that has legs: "Outside Woman," "Natural High"
- Barbara Lewis singles that made the '60s a better place: "Puppy Love," "Hello Stranger"
