Random Song: I Just Want To Celebrate by Rare EarthPosted: March 11, 2012
This song is so good that it kept me happy even when I was hung over and on a crowded bus, forcing me to stand for the entire journey while more and more people piled aboard.
There is no greater testimony to a song’s awesomness.
Its on a Motown compilation of 100 tracks I have on my iPod, and I must have heard it before, but for some reason it was only when on that cramped bus that I gave it my full attention, and instantly fell in love with the track.
From the kick off of the funky guitar riff and the singalong lyrics its a work of sheer class.
Its got this great toe tapping beat, and since that first full listen its been on heavy rotation and after I finished my run today I stuck it on as a perfect, euphoric, post-exercise track.
I’ve never heard of Rare Earth before, but there is another track on the compilation, so I’ll definitely have to check it out, although I doubt it’ll match this.
The only problem with the song is that I stood on the bus holding one of the poles it hit the funky break down part of the song (around 2:51 into the vid) and I really had to fight the urge to do a bit of impromptu pole work, but I think you can get banned from buses for that.
Any thoughts? You know what to do. BETEO
