I had a request this weekend to make a CD for a block party we had here in the neighborhood. I searched through the collection for different records to really mix it up. Consequently, I pulled out a few things that I hadn't spun in a while. One of them was this fantastic 45 by UK group The Peddlers, "Delicious Lady".
The song has two things going for it: a stop and start rhythm that is still highly danceable and and some fantastic lyrics that use colors to represent different women throughout the tune. For example,
Lady in mauve
There's a problem to solve
It's terrible when we are apart.
Lady in Gray
You brighten my day
I just don't know where to start.
and then he starts going on about the lady in pink.....Great mod-pop dancer here.
