Wow....I had to bump this funky groove from 9 to 10.  Not only does it remind me of my dad, it's further evidence of how much of a "playa" he was back in the day.  And as a kid, I remember loving this record amongst the 1000 or so LPs he had.  And then fast forward to the late 90s/early 00's, and boy was I a "playa" too!  I won't go into too many details, just imagine a 20 something pizza delivery guy and king of his neighborhood bumping this tune while returning to the restaurant, knowing exactly how to extend that drive to include a "paid" smoke break.  And yeah....some details I have to leave out to protect the guilty.  Thank you BillG for playing this staple even against the haters' haterations.

LONG LIVE RP!!

Just saw these guys give an outdoor concert last week here in San Jose, CA...Home to many a low rider...
The park was full and there were people all around the perimiter watching and socializing from outside the fence.  One of the biggest turnouts I've seen for a downtown concert.  WAR put on a great show and I was really impressed with the talent of the members.  They definitely still "got it".  Really fun show!

Agree! In my case it was 1980 and I had a 1978 Firebird going south on the PCH near Santa Barbara. Had to turn the volume up to 11!

Uncle Sam = Big Brother?

In George Orwell's novel 1984, "Big Brother" is the dictator of Oceania. No one knows whether Big Brother is a real person, or simply the personification of the dictatorship. Big Brother spies on every citizen through "telescreens." Everyone is reminded constantly, "Big Brother is Watching You."

Let's compare that to the recent revelations about the Orwellian-named National Security Agency (NSA), an arm of the U.S. Department of Defense...

The bottom line is that the NSA evidently is getting call information on virtually every phone call by virtually every American, it is definitely getting the emails and call content of foreigners, and it may or may not be getting the emails and call content of Americans.

So is Uncle Sam actually Big Brother? I won't dwell on the convoluted intimate relations that would be necessary to make your uncle also your brother. Rather, as noted above, the essence of Big Brother was that "Big Brother is Watching You." Uncle Sam isn't physically observing you at all times — that much is true. But if Uncle Sam is receiving information about every phone call that you make (as the NSA concedes), and Uncle Sam has access every other electronic communication of yours, including your emails and web browsing and storing it all (which the NSA disputes), then yes, Big Brother is Watching You...

Are you serious?  How about...  EVERYWHERE?  This is one of those songs that, while a decent song, has been played SO much that I never want to hear it again.

Actually, my local classic rock stations in IA and back in MI played it constantly. A local car dealership used it in their radio ads a few years ago.
