Dexys Midnight Runners – Seven Days Too Long

So just a quick post tonight, but a track that came on during my commute the other day and again today (OK I went there because I wanted to hear it again).

Dexys need no introduction and neither does the album Seven Days Too Long comes from (searching for the young soul rebels). It carries some classics such as Geno. But I really love this track – its their cover version of Chuck Woods original and I like the fact that while it loses a bit of the funk and flow they make up for it in energy, Kevin Rowland literally screaming the backing vocals. Plus the breakdown is absolutely fantastic and it still is enough northern soul to throw a few kicks too. Tremendous.
