Cursing on records is never something I considered. Until I realized the ONLY song WFMU hasn't played on my last record was the one with the F Bomb. It also happens to be my personal favorite on the record. So now, I'm conflicted.. DO I CHANGE MY ART TO WORK WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE FCC SO I CAN BE PLAYED ON WFMU?!??! It's a real moral dilema..

Also, from the Bruno Mars album that has the awful Lazy SOng on it, there is a song called Treasure that totally channels the Whispers and EWF. The video looks like it was made for nine bucks in 1981. Good stuff.

Here's hoping "Uptown Funk" ushers in a revival of this kind of stuff. America is long overdue for a heavy dose of this type of fhonk.
Avatar Thu. 1/22/15 10:59am Cecile:

You know, the funny thing is that almost none of it, from the Gap Band to Funkadelic crossed over to the top 40! Atomic Dog was one of the Michigan national anthems of 1983, and it was 99 on the pop charts.

When Charlie did that Devil Went Down to Georgia thingy (I used to hear it a lot, because my mom's Dodge Dart only had an AM radio in it), I always thought when him and the devil had that fiddle-off that the devil's part was way cooler and more bad-ass.

I agree vis a vis the devil's fiddle solo, Mark. There's also a kickass accordion version wherein the devil's accordion solo is WAY better.

If I was playing a wicked accordion solo, I'm make sure I made one of them scrunched up heavy metal guitar solo faces.

Yes, they'd stuff a bath towel in a box of laundry detergent as a promotion. Then hire Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton to hawk them on TV.
