Morning Song – I’m Shook

August 22, 2016

(One in a series of songs sampled by C + C Music Factory on their 1991 hit, “Things That Make You Go Hmmm“.)

Not quite yet funk, … nevertheless beyond soul music altogether” is how reviewer Jason Alkeny described James Brown’s 1969 album, It’s A Mother. It’s a pretty good description for “I’m Shook”, too. A killer horn line, a tight rhythm section, and the Godfather of Soul directing every note and accent.
