Watching SNF game Texans vs Bears halftime, highlights are on. They showed a fake punt for a TD by Ravens holder Sam Cook, and Tony Dungy blurted out "You Send Me!".

Dan Patrick laughed and said "Nice!" but then added, "Not our target demo."

Just stumbled onto this:

Greatest lip-syncing of all time

Apparently Sam Cooke was supposed to lip-sync "Everybody Loves to Cha Cha Cha", when Jackie Wilson ambles on stage. From the comments:

quote:

Neither of them is singing-- they're both lip-syncing to a recording of ONLY Sam Cooke singing, and they appear to be drunk and about to bust up laughing at any moment. It seems like Sam and Jackie were drinking and Sam was like "I have? to go on this silly show and lip sync to my song... wanna make it a "duet" and mess with the audience? We can dance around too. "


Note that Jackie does Sam's trademark yodel ("woh-oo-oh-ohhh") near the end

The Mighty Hannibal - "Hymn No.5"

quote:

Taking the form of a letter to his baby, "Hymn No. 5" opens with Hannibal's mighty belting voice but soon moves into the claustrophobic clunking of a tambourine complemented by a haunting organ, giving the song the feel of a feverish nightmare.

"Hymn No. 5" doesn't spare the listener, it pulls you into the fear and feeling of senselessness that the soldiers in Vietnam must have felt. "Tell my father" Hannibal pleads, "I'm way over here in these trenches covered with blood" he moans, baring naked the horrors of war. "There's no tomorrow" continues the song in harmonic desperation taking us in to moaning that seems to be somewhere between pain and hopelessness, while remembering he has a family and a home far from that Godforsaken jungle in Vietnam.

Kafka, did you see the thread last night about Lake Street Dive ? Looks like the chanteuse singer of the past hasn't died out completely. This girl, Rachael Price is damn talented.

Rachael Price

And I realize she is more jazz than soul, but what a special talent.

Doing her Aretha thing !

15 Great Stax Records Songs



quote:

Compared to the polished, pop-influenced soul music produced by its main rival, Detroit-based Motown Records, Stax delivered distinctly Southern soul music that drew upon significant influences from the blues, country music, and especially gospel. This “Stax sound” later became a major influence on the grooving rhythms of funk music in the 1970s.




Documentary about Stax

"In a Stax Records studio in Memphis, where music and races mixed as the civil rights movement unfolded: From left, the musicians Sam Moore, Isaac Hayes, Andrew Love, Wayne Jackson, Dave Prater, Jim Stewart and Steve Cropper, around 1970" -- NY Times

Motown news:

Funk Brothers Getting Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
quote:

The amazing Funk Brothers, the Motown group that played on almost every one of the classic hits from the label during the 1960's, will get a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame on March 21.


quote:

The Funk Brothers, in effect, had more hits than any other artist during the 60's and early 70's with the number of songs on which they played. While the casual music fan was not familiar with the name, their popularity began to skyrocket after the releases of the superb documentary Standing in the Shadows of Motown from 2002.


Standing in the Shadow of Motown -- (Watch online)

I saw Booker T. and the MGs in '69.
"Hip Hug-Her" was my favorite - as you know - the intro to BARFLY.
