Music Box: Redbone

The one upside to having my iPod inexplicably die on the way to Washington is that it led to my sharing Michael's -- the 21st century equivalent of a malt with two straws? -- which led me to a whole new set of songs. Sure, we overlap on a lot of pop and New Wave stuff. But Michael's got a thing for R&B, soul and eclectic '70s music that extends far beyond my knowledge, and it was Redbone's "Come and Get Your Love" -- a Michael's iPod exclusive -- that was the runaway highlight of the ride. Don't think there's ever been a happier song, which is probably why I'm willing to cut Cyndi Lauper some slack for rearranging her classic "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" to sample it, a practice I generally frown upon.

this song is a sunny summer day, riding in my big brother's lincoln, bottle coca colas, cruising the hood, driving to downtown chicagao, and singing to the radio. i was supercool! and it always puts a smile on my face.

This song brings back many memories of my childhood. I am adding this one to my Ipod today. Thanks Kenneth.
