Shit makes me scratch circles on the dance floor…

Sure, there are always feel good tracks. But as of late, I think I’ve discovered a feel good sound. One vibe that consistently turns a mood around and causes my feet to shuffle. It tends to nod towards the sound of decades ago; 40s/50s R&B, Ray Charles swagger, the sound of rock & roll before it was just rock. The type of swing that could  turn Lou’s Cafe upside down; one moment all tranquil courtesy of The Great Pretender by the crooning Platters; then the nickel hits the slot and the patrons erupt from their booths; patrons are spinning around, twirling their gals, kicking up their feet, and just enjoying life. Or what I envision if Tulsa’s JD McPherson‘s record Signs & Signifiers could have hit the juke.

    Dude, great call on this song! WXRT is playing the hell out of it, and it’s such a happy song! I did not picture him looking like that when I first saw that record cover in Best Buy flyer. I really need to listen to more of this record! Is it all good?
