it doesn't get any better than this

look i know you are busy busy busy, so just scroll ahead to around 7 minutes and listen to this tune go out to Starsailor (LP and song) places

for your further pleasure, a chopped and screwed version

someone should Justin Bieber it

two things

1/ saw Zapp live. twice. two days in a row. a mistake, but the first night was the best show i'd seen at that point (which wasn't such a crowded field admittedly, this is 1986, but i'd still place it the All Time Top 10), so i went again.

2/ a year or two later, i interviewed Roger Troutman. He was as much a showman in front of a Walkman recorder as on the Hammersmith Odeon stage.

a big single in 1986

sampled in

another good single off Zapp IV

lyrics seem to be talking some leroi jones "changing same" business

or perhaps it's the black "It's Still Rock'n'Roll To Me"/Billy Joel...
