This is a new category for my blog, which will feature songs that make even me glad to be alive.
The Average White Band were introduced to me by my first boyfriend and along with Marvin, Stevie and Earth Wind and Fire, their music was the soundtrack to some of the most happy, sad, confusing and wonderful times of my life.
This song never fails to make my spirit soar, and whilst the band are still touring with (I think) 2 of the original members, this is them at their best. They should really have featured on last nights Danny Baker’s Great Album Showdown for The White Album, but I’ll let it go this time 😉
I especially like the accompanying video where they are clearly singing out of sync (perhaps because it’s a completely different song?!) and for any old pervs out there, Pan’s People are ‘dancing’ in the background – eat your heart out Strictly!
Happy Friday x
