You Can Count On Me

Drew over at Across The Kitchen Table has it right.

Whilst I post an upbeat tune to get your Mondays going, every week, without fail, come Friday, Drew will post an absolute banger of a track (usually an Old School choon I’ve either never heard before or have completely forgotten about) in his ever-wonderful “It’s Friday….Let’s Dance” series.

And as it’s payday Friday for many of us UK folks, and, more importantly for me, a day off, I figured I’d post something equally as dance-worthy, but from a different genre to that which Drew usually features.

In short, here’s Shirley Ellis:

Shirley Ellis – Soul Time

If you’ve never heard that before, a) shame on you, and b) you may recognise the counting bit from it (because that’s why you’re here, right? For some numbers based fun?) from this equally brilliant-in-a-completely-different-way tune:

the-go-team-bottle-rocket-memphis-industries

The Go! Team – Bottle Rocket

I once saw them play in Cardiff’s tiny Barfly; they were great (of course), but I will never forget their support act (okay, I may never forget them, but I’ll also never remember their name) which comprised mostly of a man throwing eggs into the audience. Most odd.

Now go see what gem Drew has posted this week. Go on, I dare you to miss out.

(God, I hope you’re posting something ace this week, Drew…)

More soon.

  1. That Ellis song may be different from what Drew spins on Fridays, but I promise you Soul Time is right up his alley. Stunningly good tune, Jez. Completely lost track of the Go Team, but I really dug the first album.

  2. Thanks for the kind words Jez. I’m glad that at least two people enjoy a Friday, that’s you and Ctel from Acid Ted. Brian is right about Soul Time, in fact it’s not up my alley but residing in my dining room in the soul box, great tune and so is the Go Team. When I play that first album by them I get tired out just listening to it. It’s got to be one of the most energetic albums.
