The Pointer Sisters are one of my favorite singing groups EVER!! These bitches could S-A-N-G. Starting off in the early 70s singing updated big band style, the Sisters (Anita, Ruth, Bonnie and June) eventually whittled down the a trio (bye Bonnie) and established themselves as accomplished singers in almost every genre, from their country hits, Grammy Award winning Fairytale and Live Your Life Before You Die, to their covers of Slow Hand and Fire, to their biggest mainstream hits like I'm So Excited, Jump, Neutron Dance and He's So Shy. Their 1983 album Breakout had four Top 10, classic 80s hits, went triple platinum and was the Thriller of non-Thriller hit machines. I don't know what that means either, but I'm sticking to it. The Sisters eventually tuckered out on the charts but have continued performing, although June, who sang lead on most of the trio's biggest hits, passed away in 2006. Their music lives on, especially on my gym mix, and these songs are all classics. Enjoy some Pointer Sisters today and get your day going! FUN FACT: The video for I'm So Excited has an excellent table flip that puts Teresa Guidice to shame!! ha!
