So Let The Rain Come Down…

its-gon-rain

lt hasn’t started storming yet, but the very credible threat is there. It’s just a matter of time at this point. Direct TV is starting to fail, and I don’t know how long I can count on Duke Energy, so here are a few quick hits.

The weird one out of these is K.C. & the Sunshine Band‘s Ain’t Nothing Wrong. Don’t front, K.C. Was and still is the shit. They’re much more than just That’s the Way (I Like It). They had plenty of hits, and were sampled over 180 times, including this one. I’ve heard this album plenty of times, and I just recently realized that Digable Planets used this in Where I’m From. Sometimes, I’m dense like that.

The rest of the songs should be just as easily recognized. If you can’t catch them, then welcome to the Osmium Club.

 

 

Beyond This World doesn’t count. I just included that cuz I just saw the video on TV. Probably haven’t heard this song in years, let alone seen the video. This song, this ALBUM, will always be the shit. I’m not going to go into my Jungle Brothers’ rant ( they were always about Afrocentrism and dance music). Just dig the song. It always come back to the Native Tongues
