It's Friday . . . Let's Dance

This week's track is probably the most commercial by far of the tracks posted in this series and probably the most recent;  by which I mean it was released at the start of this decade.

The track You See The Trouble With Me by Barry White and Ray Parker Jr was first released in the 70's by White. The Black Legend cover originally sampled White's dulcet tones. When White voiced his displeasure with the track it was re recorded with Elroy "Spoonface" Powell providing the vocals.

The track reached number 1 in the UK in June 2000 and was the 40th best selling single here that year.

Black Legend - The Trouble With Me

For all Mrs M's Kate Bush, Blondie, Eno, Jellyfish, Jethro Tull (posiibly the only girl to ever buy a Tull album), and Monsters of Rock history. This sort of tune is entirely her weak-spot.

I'm so out of touch. I know nothing about this track.

Davy H, you old purist.

Ctel - you surprise me. Check out Clubroot, similar to Burial but more moody, excellent stuff.
