For this weekend I thought I’d give you something vintage. Nothing feels as good as classic sounds, to somewhat paraphrase our iconic skinny feeling Kate Moss.
Thank you for this beautiful week, for your great comments, I wish you have the most amazing weekend yet! There’s a little over a week to spend from 2009, be wise and full of love while spending those days! Enjoy Carl Douglas 1974 Kung Fu Fighting! (more info right after the jump!)
You might ask yourself what’s wrong and why haven’t I chose a Christmas song this week: well, simply because we have all these days till Christmas to grace our eyes and ears with a tiny carol or Christmassy song every day! Today it’s “Kung Fu Fighting!”.
The video I included here is a bit un-synchronized but at least it’s the original and it’s the most relevant of them all. Kung Fu Fighting was one of those one time wonders written in a moment of inspiration that would never spark again in Carl Douglas. The time was around 1974 when everyone was mesmerized by Kung Fu and the treasures of Chinese culture. The song was largely covered and reproduced on various movie soundtracks for both the big and the little screen (Wayne’s World 2, Beverly Hills Ninja, Shaolin Soccer, Kung Fu Panda, Rush Hour 3 to name just a few).
