Friday Night Music Club

Yey! We made it to Friday again! Give yourself a pat on the back. And then have a listen to the next five tunes in our season of Friday Night pleasers.

rachel-sweet-baby-stiff Rachel Sweet – B-A-B-Y

a1805125747_10 Nick Pride & The Pimptones – White Lines

Bet you’re expecting me to play the original next aren’t you? Well, that’s not how we roll around these parts, I’m afraid (but fear not, it’ll crop up sooner or later). 

Instead, we’re going back to the 70s…

37054-200x200 The James Taylor Quartet – The Theme from “Starsky & Hutch”

..and specifically, we’re going to go all Blaxploitation flick on yo’ass..

womack_bobb_across110_105b Bobby Womack – Across 110th Street

510cBiPgbIL Curtis Mayfield – Superfly

Not long after I moved to London, I was travelling on the tube and my ipod, unbidden and on shuffle, gave me those last three songs in that order. I have never felt so “street” in my life, and found myself striding along the platform with a distinct superfly guy strut, much, I imagine, to the amusement of my fellow commuters.

More soon.
