Monday Song 7-25-16

Hi everyone! I know I know it’s Monday! I couldn’t decide which song I wanted to feature! I looked around at different web sites and finally found this classic by Curtis Mayfield. The song debuted in 1970. Spinditty suggested this one and several other songs for Monday. Because of its awesome beat and lyrics, “Move On Up” got me going!  I remember the song from the 2003 British movie, “Bend it Like Beckham.” It’s still a pretty good movie about football (soccer) and the Indian culture 13 years later. Well guys, it’s time for me to rise and grind! Have a great Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow. I’ll have a Romantic Tuesday story and song for you! Take care!  


  1. Wow! We went to San Francisco last month. It was so beautiful there! I’d move there if it was affordable. It’s Cali so NO way! LOL.


  2. Hi Kat! It’s so good to hear from you! I hope you’re doing alright in California! It’s hot here too but probably not as hot as Arizona! It will be 99 today. Yesterday it was 105! I’m glad you enjoyed the song!


  3. What a blast from my past….thanks, I haven’t heard this song in a very, very long time….hope all is well for you, I am back in California, been here 4 weeks and still have a couple left….hope your keeping cool, my husband is in Yuma…..its hot there!!! kat

  4. Maybe he was just a humble person. I really really enjoy the lyrics to this one. It made me want to get out of bed. I thought he was only a solo artist! Wow! I learn something new everyday, especially from the guru 😎

  5. Depends on who you talk to. I never thought of him as underrated, but it maybe because he was kind of low-key about it. He was a great songwriter, for The Impressions, himself and others. His soundtrack to the movie Superfly is a must-listen, and is probably his greatest achievement in a career full of greatness.

  6. I must have missed this yesterday, or I forgot to comment. Great song! His first solo song after leaving The Impressions. A great social commentator and songwriter. He is truly missed.
