1000 SONGS - DAY 283 SONG # 314

Day 283: Express Yourself

This is what this blog is all about: to express myself by using good music. And no, this is not about the Madonna Song or Lady Gaga using it for Born This way. This here is a funk classic that has often been covered and has also been used as as sample in hiphop. What this guy called Labrinth did was something in between sampling and covering the song. I found a really great sounding rendering of the original recording by Charles Wright and the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band, This is pure early funk, enjoy it!

The classic use of the song as a sample is by Niggers With Attitude (I definitely like it more than Labrinths version):
