Diana Ross Receives Supreme Honor

Diana Ross
There isn't much that hasn't been said about Diana Ross in her over 40-year career, but it can be said with certainty that she has not yet been honored by the prestigious Kennedy Center. This December, along with legends from varying backgrounds: Actor/Comedian, Steve Martin; Filmmaker, Martin Scorsese; pianist Leon Fleisher and composer, Brian Wilson; Diana Ross will be awarded what has been considered the artistic equivalent of knighthood in Britain.

To celebrate the achievement, we'll leave you with a moment from Kennedy Center Honoree, Diana 'The Boss' Ross' epic 1983 Central Park Concert.

"The show will not stop!"

This "Endless Love" performance is inarguably one of the greatest concert moments in recent history. A crowd of over 300,000 bore witness as Diana Ross gave new meaning to Singing In The Rain.

Saturday Soul: L'Trimm, "Cars That Go Boom"

From The Cocoa Lounge

Holy Cabbage Patch Kids! We're in a fun, 80's mood, which means today's Saturday Soul may just come with its own can of Aqua Net.

Hence, the video for 80s duo, L'Trimm's, one and only claim to fame: "Cars That Go Boom." The group, comprised of emcees Lady Tigra and Bunny, were a wicked combination of JJ Fad and Cyndi Lauper who quickly jumped onto the Top 40 Charts and landed in oblivion.

We hope--somewhere--they've managed to find happiness with the ones they especially like:

Which ones?
You know the ones with the cars that go...
I hear you...
Hit it!
