A to Z Music Challenge - W is for Barry White, Kanye West, Wham!, Amy Winehouse, Warren G, Whitesnake, The Who, Weezer, Stevie Wonder, Steve Winwood and The White Stripes

I can see the finish line. It's so close.

Let's just do this thing, shall we?

Barry White
The smooth, soulful voice that helped make many babies, this stuff is still damn good. Gentlemen....lemme tell you this....I don't know a single woman who wouldn't swoon if you played this song for her.


Kanye West
Quite possibly the dude with the biggest ego in the world, he's also talented enough to force most of the world to tolerate him. He really is an ass, but dammitall if he can't write some catchy lyrics. The one thing you either love or hate about this guy is that he's honest. Brutally, with no filter. Instead, he packs a megaphone. He's always pissed, and I tend to love people like that. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm fully aware of the fact that he probably resents the fact that I love his music, but I'm good that way. Get down, K, go 'head get down. And yeah, I'm only linking the censored version.



Wham!
The duo from whence came George Michael, they were the personification of pop music in the early 80s.


Amy Winehouse
Yet another member of the 27 Club, she was a musical genius with a voice unlike anyone else, but the lure of drugs and booze was too strong. The world lost a good one. If only she'd actually gone to rehab...



Warren G
Gangster rap wouldn't be what it was without someone to regulate.


Whitesnake
Don't lie. You wanted to shake your ass on the hood of Whitesnake's car, didn't you? Hell yes you did. I don't know where I'm going, but I sure know where I've been. They brought spiral perms to the men, yes they did.


The Who
No reason to write anything, just this.


Weezer
They are weird and quirky, half of their song lyrics make no sense, but that makes me love them more.


Stevie Wonder
How can anyone not love Stevie??? I don't think it's possible.


Steve Winwood
His career has lasted forever and some of his songs are the anthems of the 80s. Like this one.


The White Stripes
Jack White is a freaking genius.
