Galaxy - War

This track came into my mind to be my soul/funk track of the month, when we were in the aptly named Library pub, Upper Street, Islington before the Arsenal, Villa game last week, talking about all the old clubs and discos that we used to frequent. Obviously the Zero Six by Southend airport came up. I am not sure if this is still there, but we remiminissed about how we reckoned the place was full of lesbians as when we could be bothered to talk to them, when they put the smoochies on at the end of the night, they always refused to dance. There were a lot of songs from this era that I enjoyed “Hotshot,” by Karen Young, “Shame,” Evylyn (Champagne) King and a host of others. One that stood out was “Galaxy,” by War. This was a great slice of Funk that got the foot tapping and has one of those lyrics in it that I always sing wrong “and the man in the moon was Simon Bates.” Why Simon Bates would be in the moon instead of doing Our tune on radio 1, I will never know. War had some bigger and probably better songs than this “Me and Baby Brother” and “Low Rider”as well as doing a couple of albums with chirpy, geordie, frontman of the Aniamals Eric Burdon, but Galaxy is my favourite.

So get out your white leather sandals and have a groove to this one.
