Song of the day: Al Jarreau- Roof Garden
Actually, there is a little argument going on between my father and me. He says that this probably was one of the first rap-records, which became a hit. I definitely disagree with him, because it’s not rapping, but singing in a special way. Of course it’s very difficult to do this, but to me, it’s not really rapping. I stay with the belief that there were other records which were hits, but were rap-records. I almost know for sure that Rapper’s Delight was the first record. It definitely was earlier, because that was 1979 and Roof Garden is 1982! Anyone knows a rap-record (and it has to be a hit!) before Rapper’s Delight??? Leave a comment! And for the moment, enjoy
