    God I'm always amazed at the stuff people will jump on or defend based on the day they are having. Not like I'm the only one to hassle someone, in fact I pretty much never do it.

    It was really a joke, but I should have used a The guy is called Mr Lee PHD. I figued useing a Beastie Boy song title he would have a little humor in him. I thought spelling school with a K would indicate joke.

    But really there are better Ike & Tina songs.....but the one he listed is a good one too. And Nancy Wilson isn't really funk.

    No hate, just still working on my first cup of coffee so my joke O' meter isn't up and running.

    Yo its all kool.

    You're right tho, the Nancy Wilson is more jazz I suppose... okay switch that for Sue Ann Jones - I'll Give You My Love.

    Just to be clear I really was just kidding.


    So........


    Spanky Wilson - "you" more big band funk but it's got people asking me "what this?" there is another Spanky getting big bucks but I can't remeber the name.....thought or think or tough orsomething

    Ann Alford - "got to get a job" I know it's on the font page but I've had it for a while and it always gets people asking

    "Unwind Yourself" - old news but most people just know it as a beer comercial and the DJ Kool cut, so they always ask.

    Bettty Davis - 'they say I'm different" people always warm up to this when you say she was married to Miles.

    That's a good one too. "Doin It" was the one I couldn't think of. I knew it had a T in the title some where. I'm going back to school now!

    I'm sure it's the lack of sleep and excessive moving of boxes but........."poptart" is fucking cracking me up today!





    We'll knows it's caught on when djanna tells her dog "Look you little poptart I'll talk you for a walk when I finished my breakfast!"

    Good question......Ike wrote their version so if anyone has a copy of Spanky and could check the composer. That Spanky goes for 1-200 hundred so I sure as heck don't have one.

  • There's this one Raeletts jam that seriously rocks too, I forgot the name offhand but the point of the song is telling a woman to clean up her act.
