I remember dancing to this in my romper suit when I was two years old.  I just loved it, and that man's voice still touches a deep and joyful place in me.  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump} {#Jump} {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}  {#Jump}

Milt Turner - he variously described it as a "faux rhumba" and a conga rhythm. It's one-of-a-kind, that's for sure.

This 10 track really gets me playing some "desktop air piano" at work.  And while my piano playing days are behind me, I still think I could figure out the left hand pretty quickly.  This guy was sooo good!

Although initial response was mixed and some stations banned it Atlantic persevered on pushing the record. Eventually it became a big hit, Billboard #1 on R&B and #6 on Hot 100. Atlantic was a very cool label and the partnership between the management and Ray Charles created some very great music.

In Robert Gordon's "Respect Yourself," his history of Stax Records, Jim Stewart (the ST in STax—Estelle AXton was the other), attributes his "R&B awakening" to hearing this song on WDIA in Memphis. He was a country fiddler and had never heard anything like it.

Yes, in many ways American Idol is the worst thing to happen to popular music since mandatory playlists for radio stations in the late 1970s.  It's done even more damage than MTV did.

Years ago (ALMOST 40!), there was a classic SNL bit where John Belushi was doing a bit as Beethoven on the piano.  Gilda Radner (as Mrs. B.) is of course screaming at him, because Ludwig can't hear a damn thing.

After Gilda and Laraine Newman depart, Ludwig takes a couple of snorts of coke, and then slips on some sunglasses.  He proceeds to do a great Ray C. impersonation of this song.  IT KILLED!
