230: “Sweet Thang” by Shuggie Otis

Nice smile, despite the snaggle.I spoke to an otherwise reasonable 25-year-old yesterday who had never heard of Shuggie Otis. And a few days ago, I was mocked for not having seen the Katy Perry video where she has cupcake boobs.

Perhaps I am hanging out with the wrong crowd.

Here’s a track we all should know, eye em oh. It’s “Sweet Thang” by Shuggie Otis, a talent from the 70’s whose success was much too short-lived. Shuggie wrote “Strawberry Letter 23,” which was a big hit for The Brothers Johnson.

This track is not jank at all. Enjoy.
