Song of the Day: "Give me the Night" - George Benson
Good God is this song funky as all hell. I was recently down at a local waterhole and this old man was DJ'ing and he was playing nothing but old hits. When this tune came on everyone lost their damn minds and got down. EVERYONE, even the bouncers were bopping along to this heavenly groove. I don't get to listen to much classic funk these days but I'm sure I'm missing out on something special when they have throw away songs like this.
It actually makes me sad that Funk isn't as prominent as it once was, I guess it was a causality of war when everyone suddenly decided that Disco wasn't cool any more.
