Song of the day: Bob & Earl- Harlem Shuffle

bob_earl harlem shuffle

Today we have a single from 1963, which has been covered a lot of times. The original was sung by Bob & Earl, which made it to number 44 in the US. A later re-release in 1969 made it to the top 10 in the UK. A nice fact is that the single was co-arranged by Barry White and Gene Page. Later, the song was sung by Booker T & The MG’s, The Righteous Brothers, The Belle Stars, The Rolling Stones and Pete Townshend (known from The Who, but here in a band called Deep End). A sample of the first line with horns was used by House of Pain in their hit Jump Around. Today the original! Enjoy
