I was just driving around today, minding my own business and all of a sudden "Bwaaaah!!!, bwap bwap bwaaaah.." came blaring out of my speakers. Holy shit, friends, it was total goosebump city, the intro to Bob and Earl's "Harlem Shuffle". That few seconds just slays me, every time. And the rest of the song is every bit as badass. The arrangement by a young Barry White is a huge part of this humdinger, the way the horns come in and out, the sparse, almost reggae like guitar. and what sounds like tympani accents. This is a package. I defy you not to move.
