Curtis Mayfield


I love my oldies. And Curtis Mayfield wrote what is probably my most favorite song- "Pusherman". This song opened my eyes up to how oldies have some pretty crazy lyrics. My dad had this song on the Crooklyn movie soundtrack album and he would always play it-then one day I listened to the lyrics.

I was shocked. But what can I say-it's still on of my favorite songs. 

Also if you are familiar with the Sparkle movie- Curtis wrote most of the songs for that movie.


There are also a few others I love by him.

The Makings of You- First heard a sample of this on a Monica album
Superfly
Here But I'm Gone
You Mean Everything to Me.

But Pusherman is the song I could listen to one repeat forever!!
