Soul sunday shows you the light

9 03 2008

Raise your hand if you know Bobby Caldwell. Here at Soul Sunday, he’s known for being a) white (his management tried to hide his skin color to get more airplay), b) big in Japan and c) eternalized by J-Dilla on Common’s love letter to then girlfriend Erykah Badu. Both songs have always worked for me, lyrically and musically. I never knew a lo-lo-lo-a-love like this…
