It’s my birthday today and I had a day off so no commute. This means I get a freebie and get to pick a track I have been meaning to stick up for a while, one of the funkiest tracks ever..
Beat Me Till I’m Blue by The Mohawks.
Now, most people know The Mohawks for their mighty track – The Champ. But ever since I heard this, I’ve preferred it. Every inch of it is funky: the beat, the organ, the way the horns hammer the 1 of the beat and then when that guitar comes screaming in I’m throwing out kicks everywhere. This track never left my record box when I was playing out as it sent every place I was ever in mad. Flawless.
