The Freeze

Image hosted by
Tonight, another 45 from the same CD that I included the Ray Barretto 45 on a few years back, Lifeforce's "The Freeze" on Smokeout Records (dig those hand drawn labels). This tune is 70's funk heavy on the horns (and features a bit of cowbell, too). "The Freeze" moves between tempos, from the mid-tempo backing while the singer makes his case to the building uptempo choruses. What really makes it stand out, though, are the lyrics - the song is about the correlation between a freeze on wages and, consequently, love. The lyrics are humorous, yet there are portions that you sing along to as well. Definitely one that gets under your skin.
