Funky Friday Song of the Day- Blondie

This song is STILL kickin’!
The first time I saw the video “Rapture” by Blondie, I discovered how sexy and kool she really was.
I loved that she was this beautiful punk rocker “chick” rapping over a funky cool beat. She caught my eye, and so did this 1981 music video.
The nod to street culture was great. With the grafitti artist, the ballerina, the dancer in the white tuxedo, and of course the single guy on the turntable who happens to be artist and NYC legend, JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT.

Funky Friday Song of the Day- Fela Anikulapo Kuti

Fela Kuti…king of Afrobeat.
I love everything about his music. The 1st time I heard him was in the 80’s along with King Sunny Ade on radio station CKLN, or was it CFNY..not sure. Nonetheless it changed my life, for the better. It opened my spirit up to African music and I feel it deep in my soul.
Zombie is a favorite of mine
In his honour, AFRODELIK has created a unique tshirt, celebrating the king of Afrobeat.
