I love the music of Teena Marie

  • Dec 29, 2010
This is a good collection of Teena's music. This disc contains classics like "Behind The Groove" and "Lovergirl".  I was a teenager in the eighties and these two songs really moved me. A lesser known song "Square Biz" is included here. This track gets me out of my seat. It also has smooth jams like "Irons In The Fire" and "Young Love". "I Need Your Lovin" is a cut that makes me feel good. I also love the track "Portuguese Love" Teena sounds very sensual singing this romantic song. I also enjoy her love and leave them duet "Fire and Desire" with Rick James. Teena hits unbelieveable notes on this tune. "It Must Be Magic" is a song to listen to while working out. This is a fun song. This disc is missing other great songs by Teena like the lovely jazz tune "Sunny Skies" and "Star Child" I absolutely love these songs. This disc is not the ultimate collection because of those missing songs. I must say the music that is on this disc is very entertaining. Teena Marie's music will live on forever.

Glad you reviewed this because other than "Lovergirl" I never really paid much attention to Teena Marie. Loved that tune but you and some other Lunch members have managed to convince me that her other stuff is definitely worth checking out.
