The words vintage, retro, and throwback have all been poorly used and exhausted, when used to describe music. Most throwbacks actually should be thrown back to wherever they were.
Then there are some songs that no matter when they came out, what hairstyle you were rocking at that time, or what grade you were in. When you hear that song it has a way of evoking the same emotion. The type of song that you memorize the videos and sing the ad-libs, these songs are defined as Timeless.
From time to time Tyrone and I will submit an entry for the 1loveto.com Timeless From Toronto vault, if you have any suggestions please leave a comment. Once the song is posted on the blog it is up to our readers to decide if it is indeed Timeless from Toronto.
time⋅less [tahym-lis] – By our definition are the classic songs that have the same impact every single time.
throw⋅back [throh-bak] – By our definition are old songs, yes just an old song that is not a classic just because it’s old.
So for this edition of Timeless From Toronto I wanted to take it back to one of the first cassette tapes (that’s right, I said cassette tapes) I ever bought from Sam The Record Man… The Dream Warriors 1991 debut album “And Now the Legacy Begins”. Aside from “Wash Your Face In My Sink” their biggest hit was “My Definition of a Boombastic Jazz Style”, which won Best Rap Recording of the Year in 1992 at the Juno Awards.
Shout out to King Lou and Capital Q representing for the Jane & Finch and Willowdale neighbourhoods of Toronto.
Let me know, is it Timeless or merely a Throwback, WHICH ONE?
