Sock It To Me, Baby


How many times could I listen to this in a single day? Hundreds. Especially for that bit at 1:33.

And Ms Ally'll have it on 45, I shouldn't wonder.

  6. Here we have an interesting reggae take on a very Latin song that was originally a hit for Xavier Cugat in 1940 and that has been covered by just about everyone since then. The composer of the song was Mexican and your post was two days before Cinco de Mayo, so you are brilliant in multiple ways.

    Yes, it's a bolero, you know.

  8. It is subliminal rather than inadvertent, I think.
