It was the final song in a movie from the seventies "Cooley high" it was so great to see the heroe running on this beat, just after "it's so hard to say goodbye..."! Great memory!

TIMELESS and Guaranteed to Please... Yeah, it's kinda dated, but wow, how gloriously so! Dig the stereo separation on this recording!

This is one of my favs from childhood, about 20 years after it was released, it was included on a series of cassette tapes by the Shell corp and sold at their gas stations.  My dad bought each of the tapes (50s &early 60s, late 60s,&  early 70s, late 70s & early 80s) 5 tracks per side, one per year, something like that....anyways, this was one of those tracks and I'll always have fond memories of hearing this in the backseat.  Good stuff!  10!

Those "Ha!" and "Ruff!" noises he makes always seemed so out of place in this song to me.

I think most people would agree with you. I certainly do.
