Song of the Day - July 28, 2005

I first heard this song last week on NPR and I was immediately drawn to it. The song is "Love's A Real Thing" by the Super Eagles. This song is a perfect blend of 60's psychedelic sounds and West African funk. The song appears on the compilation World Psychedelic Classics 3: Love's a Real Thing; the Funky, Fuzzy Sounds of West Africa. This is on David Byrne's Luaka Bop label. Yes, that David Byrne of The Talking Heads, he is a tireless promoter of world beats and funky sounds. To hear the song of the day click here. The whole album is outstanding, I especially liked the opening track "Minsato Le, Mi Dayihome" and "Keleya" with its funky organ riffs, sax solos, and James Brown influenced vocals. Click here to enjoy the album in its entirety.
