rip teddy pendergrass / long live this kind of lyrics

I.M. Teddy Pendergrass – he’s made many a woman feel good – and so much more …
As for myself: I don’t really dig his later work on Elektra, but I do enjoy some of his early work on Philadelphia International … especially this song in particular, with its wonderful strings, and superslick, sensuous trumpet part.

Tnx Thierry B for the – sad – news. And check this 1984-09 Ebony magazine article for more on TP’s misfortunes.
Hey and do give the lyrics of “Come go with me” (off his third lp “Teddy”, Philadelphia International 1979) a close listen and do contemplate on the fantasy dialogue that starts around four minutes into the song … “sip a little wine, work things out”“please I can not stand pressure” … it’s the most grandiose make out music!

Also, believe it or not, yesterday I was preparing a number of future posts, and I had actually prepared the basics for (a.o.) a post featuring these two tracks. Little did I know there would be sad news concerning Mr TP only hours later. Anyway, here goes: Leon Haywood‘s “Out to catch” (Casablanca 1980) is yet another example extraordinaire of superlative ‘discotheque fantasy projected’ songwriting. Check, for instance, the wanky fantasy dialogue around 3’45” into the track … “this is my first time too” “listen to some soft music, have a little chilled wine, and, you know, get to know each other a little better”

(This is the lp version off “It’s Me Again”; do catch the 12″ mix too – can’t decide which one is better.)

best of 2009 / decade

Media_httpcdnpitchfor_rdcuf

Eh sorry. (Check the Pitchfork link below for more on that Dark Meat sleeve.) Anyhoo, here’s sum WORST / BEST OF 2009 / OF DECADE IN MUSIC LISTS … As a matter of principle, I’m not in favour of lists or giving star quotings, but somehow, those end-of-year lists addictive … even though the not so funky yankee indie crowd seems to specialise in them. Anuthà largehearted boy has listed most … I’m just including the ones he hasn’t listed yet … and on those sites, do check the individual sites for other lists or more recent updates too, won’t you, as I’m just listing one list per site, even if they have many (song / album / reissue / sleeve / …).
