Saturday Night Dance Party!





This is how I am feeling right now.

Dance like no one's watching.

Sing like no one's listening.


"Shaft" - they say this cat Shaft is a bad mutha!


PS - HAPPY BIRTHDAY MANGINA!

    You give us here another of those records that defined the moment - in this case early 70s. I remember we thought at the time that the film would signal a new kind of crime-caper/crime-stopper cinema, though if it happened at all it was to be short-lived.
    This single 'only' got to #4 in UK though I see it was a chart-topper in America.

    The story of Isaac Hayes is a strange one, what with his late conversion to the Scientology cult (I use the 'c' word deliberately because they dislike it so much) - and, not long afterwards, his untimely demise.
    But his 'Chocolate Salty Balls' was unforgettable and, were it not for 'Shaft' it would have been a particularly fine epitaph to have remembered him by. (Tee hee!)

    Greetings to all, not least the little furballs - and a nice Labour Day w/e to you.

    Byeeeee!

    1. that's cause raybeard lives in the UK, so he has a 5-6 hour head start on the rest of the boyfriends!

      I don't call him king raybeard for nothing, since he is the KING of my dance party entries!
