Booker T & The MG’s – Soul Limbo

They don't create them tunes like this anymore. So, the other day I was driving to work just randomly playing through stuff on the USB stick in my car when todays track came on and it got me thinking.

 

Maybe it's because I'm older, maybe it's because the internet has demystified finding out what the name of a track is or who it's by, but I can't think of many theme tunes these days where I think, wow. This track, as anybody my age in the uk will know, was used as the theme tune to the cricket back in the late 70's/early 80's (may have the time frame wrong). I used to wait for the program just to hear the theme tune – couldn't give a shit about cricket. There were others such as the theme tune to Formula 1 which used the chain by fleetwood mac and many others. These are pretty obvious and there were many others.

 

Anyway, everyone knows booker t and the mg's, I guess everyone knows this track. It's genius and I used to play it out a lot. The place would go bonkers.
