Anyone who doesnt know this piece of musical genius - quick, download it or listen to it. It is simply amazing. So so many neat facts about this so here goes:
- Isaac Hayes - the attractive bald skinned brother voices Chef in South Park
- The movie Shaft is a must see if you want to see a smooth bad-ass man running around with a gun
- This song won an Oscar for best original song making Isaac Hayes, the first African American to win that...
- One of my favorite parts of the song is the part where Isaac goes He's a bad mother ---- and the back up singers interrupt with "Shut your mouth"...Sheer genius
- He's a complicated man and no-one understands him but his woman....A classic line again from the song
- The first minute or so is instumental and is really heavy on guitar riffs
- It has been parodied in shows from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air to Sesame Street
This song is a defining one for the soul/disco genre and i urge everyone to add it to their library...Enjoy. (Hear it by pressing play on the soundbyte player widget thingy)....
