Thighs Wide Music

Remember, I'm a movie snob, not a music one, so my top picks are pretty much the only albums I listened to this past year. I'd rather be adventurous when I order out for Chinese, not when seekin out hot new artists that every other blogger cross the globe wastes their time leg humpin on. But why should I explain myself when I basically launched Lily Allen's US career, right?

1928 or 1933 - 2006

I was lucky to have seen the man perform twice in my life. The first time was the mos memorable, although I was 10 and I can't eggzactly prove that I was there. Anywho, the event was a six-hour Vietnam Vet tribute concert entitled Welcome Home, and was held at the now deceased Capital Centre, in Landover, MD. The bill was chock-loaded with the likes of Crosby Stills, & Nash, Richie Havens, Linda Ronstadt, et al, but one act stood above the rest: James Brown. I didn't understand why he kept on playing, even after endless pleas for him to stop came from a stagehand, but years later I found out that is was all a part of his act. What a true showman. A showman who's talents (and hair) will never equalled. Hopefully Papa's got a brand new bag and whatever else he desires in that big Apollo Theater in the sky
