My favorite version with the words is Billy Paul's.

I think of it as a late summer/ early autumn song ( but it works for a breakup -with -the- old -year -mix too) Mind: blown
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm coelacanth∅:

10 years old huh?! golly you don't look a day over, uh, a couple decades more than that.

Great to hear you, Kurt. Electric first set.
Avatar 8:24pm KP:

Kurt! Through the goal posts already!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Gaylord Fields:

It's my pleasure, Kurt! You'll do such good things with these two hours, judging by that opening set (as well as your ten-year track record).
  8:25pm JayD:

I do like what you’re playing! More, please.
  8:26pm Listener Schned:

Thanks, Herr Gottschalk, for the finest New Year's pre-game soundtracks! C u next year!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm coelacanth∅:

Gaylord, is that what's on Kurt's playlists page - a ten-year track record?

Wow, it's so rare to hear music that I actively dislike. This is what makes WFMU special!

10 year anny, w00h00!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm unpopularfred:

That made me nostalgic for the old Korg M1 whip sound.
  8:32pm Frenna Dorothy:

I like Ann Steel, putting My Time on my time and travel playlists
  8:37pm Frenna Dorothy:

well at least that one didn't have Fred butting in every other line repeating her

Congratulations, Kurt - listening from the fake London.
Avatar 8:48pm david_:

this whole y pants album is brilliant
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Smilty69:

@Borgus: I was never into 10-year-olds, but whatever floats your boat...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Gaylord Fields:

@coelacanth∅: That's one way to put it, so yes. A track record of a freeform DJ who excels at his craft.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Gaylord Fields:

@Smilty69: Kurt's radio show is a 10-year-old, and we're all unashamed.
  8:55pm Frenna Dorothy:

I love this song ever since I checked this CD outta the library in the 90s and I of course wonder if someone really did say exactly this stuff to Suzzy when she was getting Sudsy at the Laundromat...
Avatar 9:00pm TehBadDr:

Great stuff I'm hearing, really rounds out the demarcation of the up coming annum!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Happy New Year, São Paulo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm coelacanth∅:

it's 12 hours into 2018 in aussieland. the year already shows no promise. we have nothing to look forward to except to be equal in the laundrOmat.

Must this.

The Elaine Mitchener reminded me of Lydia Tomkiw

hey laundromat equity is underrated
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Rob W & Katie:

One of our 2017 highlights was our first visit to Australia. Hopefully this year will be better to the Great Barrier Reef - it is truly phenomenal. Some great record shopping in Melbourne, cute penguins, and loved Sydney's Asian fare. Happy new year coelacanth∅ and Australia, NZ and the Pacific - and very soon to everyone else!

Happy New Year ya NJ spin-freaks! From Texas!
  9:21pm V Priceless:

Happy new one, fish!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm northguineahills:

Kurt seems jolly today, must be all the time in laundromat and bathroom.
  9:23pm Frenna Dorothy:

oh it says it right there on Bucky's playlist. Sweet Charity. I don't know that song Sugarplum mentioned. I have only seen clips here and there because I have no patience for Shirleys early work. I should re-view it. I remember when it was on tv 44 years ago and I was intrigued by the (SPOILER ALERT) caption in the final scene that said she lived Hopefully ever after.
  9:24pm Frenna Dorothy:

He's jolly because it's a very special day and because his lady has joined him in the WFMU studios this evening :-)
  9:27pm V Priceless:

so bizarre I was gonna ask if u had any 5th Dimension
  9:27pm rich:

happy new year kurt. i love the these boots are made for walking polka on this record.

Back from a NYE party. It's 2.26am here so Happy New Year everyone.

Thought that Sammy Davis were Lord Buckley himself. Far out. HNY friends and others!
  9:34pm Eric Hat:

Shows making me cry out for decades of youth passed.
Avatar 9:40pm Scraps deSelby:

The Rhythm of Life is a great dance piece. Even better is The Rich Man's Frug. And for a musical, it's a real downer; MacLaine gets shat on in the movie.
  9:43pm V Priceless:

Roll Away The Stone!
