Back to black

Les chansons à message ont généralement tendance à me gonfler un peu mais celle-là jamais ô grand jamais.
Elle est habitée, plaintive, sensuelle, d'une rage froide rarement égalée.
Bref c'est un classique incontestable de la musique Noire.

Syl Johnson "Is it because I'm black"

Comme pas mal de gens de ma génération je l'ai découvert grâce au Wu Tang Clan qui le samplent avec brio sur cet excellent titre
de 2000 extrait de "The W".

Wu Tang Clan "Hollow bones"

Ce ne sont pas les seuls à avoir rendu hommage à ce manifeste sorti originellement en 1969, les plus grands du reggae s'y sont attaché, avec à chaque fois une sensibilité et un chaloupé propre à chaque interprète.

Ken Boothe "
Is it because I'm black"

Delroy Wilson "
Is it because I'm black"

Senior Soul "
Is it because I'm black"

Et enfin celle dont la découverte tardive a motivé ce post, un peu plus proche de nous, une version passée un peu inapperçue qui n'a rien à envier aux hits
trip hop de l'époque.

Earl 16 "
Is it because I'm black"

One of my favorite soul classics ever, lyrics and melody are so great it has been sampled and covered in many ways, it inspired a bunch of reggae singers and hip hop producers as you can hear in this selection.

In recent years, more and more people are inclined to choose Cheap UGG Boots , but for my part, I like Classic UGG Boot and UGG Classic Tall Boots
more. One of the reason that I like ugg boots Is because of a pair of elegant classic ugg boot. I really appreciate one pair of ugg classic tall boots when I first saw them. As for clothes, I like the brand ED Hardy, ED Hardy wholesalecomes into the world rapidly, and many young girls like wholesale ED Hardy.
