Rose Royce, Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is [Single] (1976)
Oscar knows his role – when we go to the record shop of first choice (Slow Boat) he is allowed to look at the 50c singles on the floor and choose one; it keeps him from bending the covers of new records. Though he’s getting better and more respectful/understanding of records…anyway, he pulls out these singles and chooses, on a whim, by cover or artwork or whatever…usually the colours on the label I figure. And a while back he chose this. And that was fine. If he picks something that’ll be utterly garbage – unless it’s funny – I’ll steer it back into the bin and suggest he picks something else. But Rose Royce no complaints. Anyway, we didn’t do much with this until just recently and he got totally hooked on the A-Side. The B-side too, a little, sure. But that A-side is killer-good. And now I’ll be fighting him for it. (I should win).
