The Tape Deck: Think I Better Let It Go...

Monday, January 24, 2011

Eddie Murphy 'discussed' during his 1983 Delirious comedy show about male singers' and their different approaches to music. He joked that he liked masculine voices like Teddy Pendergrass because he "scared the bitches into liking him"  (you know the gruff proclamation of "you got, you got what I need!!" part in "Only You"). Well, consider me scared and attentive as I have been in a Pendergrass mood this for a few days now. Ironically (and sadly) it's been a year to the month in which he passed on, thus there is no time like the present to revel in one of the sultans of quiet storm. Also it's not too early in the week to be thinking about that love thang, if ya know what I means. Women clutch those underoos in throwing anticipation and men take note on how to treat the ladies...the smoothie Tape Deck to your week is after the cut...
