sotd 4.12.11

Some notes:
* I love the brass.
* This song was written by Curtis Mayfield (one of my faves, mmm) and includes the phrase “Let your backbone slip” – this line is also in Mayfield’s “Move On Up,” where I always thought it sounded a little crazy. But I guess that references an actual-sorta dance move-thing.
* Oh, and “the monkey” is a dance. For real.
* There are not nearly enough such “dances” nowadays. There are no Twists or Mashed Potatoes or whatnots anymore. I mean, like maaaaaybe the Cupid Shuffle comes close. But not really.

“Monkey Time” / Major Lance (1973)
