This So-Called Post-Post-Racial Life

Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here this day…

…in the face of the company of all visitors to this blog site, to celebrate a wedding edition of Old School Friday. Choosing OSF songs is commended to be honorable among all bloggers—women and men—and therefore is not to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly but reverently, discreetly, and solemnly. Into this holy playlist these versions of the song played at my own wedding—coming on 16 years ago—now come to be shared and enjoyed. If any person can show just cause why these versions of “Unforgettable” should not be played, let them speak now or forever hold their peace.

What, therefore, Nat King Cole has begun, let no other artist put asunder.

And so, by the power vested in me by the State of Blogland and OSF creators Marvalus at Conversations with Marva and MrsGrapevine, I now present Nat King Cole, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, and Dinah Washington. And may your listening be good and long upon the earth.

You may now press play. play-ville-de-lumiere-by-gold



  1. For some reason I could only get Nat to play, but that is all right because he was beautiful enough!
    I had no clue so many people re did that song.
    Great pick!

  2. I’m with Regina, I didn’t know that many people remade this song. Good one! Happy OSF!

  3. I really wanted to hear them all, but only Nat King Cole’s version played for me. Good choices just the same and I enjoyed your creativity in writing it up. 🙂

  5. Oh! Bummer about the playlist. It can be a little sometimey. Yeah, Regina and Sabrina, more folks than I knew did versions. I did not know about Aretha’s, for example, until I was putting this together. I encourage you all to check out the other versions. I personally love Marvin’s version.

    Thank you Nordette and Marvalus. It gets harder and harder for me to put a different spin week after week! LOL Thanks to everyone for dropping by my OSF!
