Eddy's Tasty Grooves

The Three Degrees
The first song of my tasty grooves is an all-time favourite of mine. I like the vocoder intro, followed by girls’ talk and the lyrics about a guy who loves macaroni (or is it about something else?). It’s from an album I bought more than 30 years ago. It’s not their best LP, but I’m a fan of the Three Degrees, ever since I saw them singing ‘Dirty ol’ man’ on television. Once you’re a fan, it never gets away… ;-) Even the late David Carradine spoke some flattering words about the three singing girls in Tarantino’s movie ‘Kill Bill’. Picture by rokarita

So, more grooves as tasty as macaroni in this mix!

Dat klinkt erg exotisch, de Zambesi bar!

Leuk, dat Cameo er tussen staat. Goede band. Single Life, Candy en natuurlijk Word Up! (dankzij de Mars-reclame weer in de picture)
