Flowers left for Sylvester James
After living in the San Francisco Bay Area for 25 years, I attended the Pride parade for the first time in 2013 as an official Safety Monitor team member. As I performed my duties at the parade from in front of the barricades, a sound truck from a radio station went by playing a familiar disco anthem. I remembered the tune and words and eventually tracked it down to here. It was YOU MAKE ME FEEL (MIGHTY REAL) from the 1978 album Step II, the year I graduated from Cornish.edu with a degree in classical voice performance as taught by Marni Nixon and others in Seattle. Wonderful song. I read about Sylvester on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sylvester_James and love that song. Also I am touched by his forgiving and gracious comment: "In an interview with the NME, he stated that "I don't believe that AIDS is the wrath of God. People have a tendency to blame everything on God".[90] = Tobler, John (1992). NME Rock 'N' Roll Years (first ed.). London: Reed International Books Ltd. p. 426. CN 5585." in the wikipedia article. God Bless you, and rest in peace, your music has resurrected many wallflowers off their chairs onto the dance floor!
