Heat Wave: The Tip of Your Move Busting Tongue

When James Brown grunts and groans it makes you sexy. Really, JB was a predecessor to beat boxers. His ‘uh’ and ‘ah’ and ‘oow’s find themselves riveting the beat and the texture of the songs. When heard, you find yourself busting whatever move is on the tip of your move busting tongue, on the dance floor.

The first line Brown sings on the soundtrack album Black Caesar is, “I was born in New York City, on a Monday.” It’s the song “Down and Out in New York City” and it is the beginning to one of the greatest albums your ears will ever ingest.

As we sweat today in the beautiful heat of asphalt, grass, and sun, put on Black Caesar - your sweat will appreciate it. So will your move busting tongue.

'black caesar' is amazing, especially considering it is built of so-called jb 'filler' material ('the boss' is a disposable b-side? whoa).

james brown blaxploitation movie trivia: 'the payback' was rejected by the makers of the movie 'hell up in harlem' for being not funky enough.
