Monumental Soundbyte - 79
James Brown - I got the feeling
A series of this nature would not be complete without something from the godfather of soul himself. This man could funkify any song.
I love, love this song because the first time i heard it was on The Cosby Show. That memorable episode when the Huxtables were celebrating Cliff's parents anniversary. And all the Huxtable kids did something to this song. Of course i remember Theo in his little tux doing his thing and looking cute and Rudy - she stole my heart in her little purple dress - "Baby, Baby, Baby"...So so cute.
This song was released in 1968 and reached the number 1 spot on the r&b charts. It also was in the top 10 on the pop charts as well. When the Jackson 5 auditioned for Motown's Berry Gordy, this is the song they chose with Michael Jackson closely mimicking James Brown's moves here.
Hot song guaranteed to get you moving. Happy Monday.........
