Pure rhymes and ghetto eloquence:
"When I date back I recall the man of the family tree, my right hand, poppa doc I see. Took me from a boy to man so I always had a father when my biological didn't bother..."
from Mecca and the Soul Brother (Elektra), available on CD
20 Apr 01 ·tinks: i absolutely love this cut, it was one of my favorites back in 11th grade when it came out. good choice! 31 May 01 ·delicado: and that sampled beat/guitar riff at the beginning is awesome as well - anyone know where that's from?
The song is one of those songs you hear and hear and you can still hear after all these years without getting tired of it.
Why I like it so much? Hmm the question I should ask is, who doesn't like it so much???
When you are tired, you go home, light a candle, close your eyes, and listen to Chapman's song. It will take you to another dimension, Chapman's dimension.
before della reese was touched by an angel she was a singer. it seems that some songs own their singers and other songs the vocalist owns the song. in della's case she definately owns the song. this song rocks and swings with blaring horns and percussion that makes it hard to sit still. and then della's voice comes in with all its unique style letting you know exactly who is boss. after della's version any other version just pales in comparison.
i'm unsure about the year this was recorded but it's a great french pop song. apparently, france is singing about lsd. 'tee-nie wee-nie bopp-ie'is rather infectious.
26 Apr 01 ·tinks: Yeah, I love this track. It was written by Serge Gainsbourg and recorded in 1967. It was released on the "1968" LP, which is available on CD as a French import. Also includes the great song "Made in France". 02 May 01 ·tinks: i should also mention that the song isn't really about lsd...it's not really *about* anything. kinda like seinfeld. she just mentions it in there. 28 May 01 ·daidai: yeh, i really wasn't too sure about this. i was merely going off of information from a source. ^.^
