There's a fun obit on HUFFPO with some great vintage video clips of the Godfather of Soul. Also, some gerat comments which follow the obit. one recounting how James appeared on TV in Boston to stop a brewing race riot. What a force! He posed on the cover of one album called IT'S A NEW DAY SO LET A MAN COME IN AND DO THE POPCORN with 3 young ladies who had a lasting impression of my drag look--one had a pouffy bouff-la-bob do, another was in an asymetrical mini mumu with one bell sleeve (which I've had in every color), and a third wore sandals with lace-up ties to above the knee, another faavoritr of mine. This must have been an import lp since I can't find this after googling for hours. Does anyone know this album cover?

I just love the insanity of that title. IT'S A NEW DAY SO LET A MAN COME IN AND DO THE POPCORN. So a man can't do the popcorn (a popular dance) until it's a new day? Can a woman still do the popcorn after the new day? Can a man stay out and do the popcorn before someone let's him come in and do it? The mind boggles. Here's an article about the evolution of tht popcorn, which icluded titles like Mother Popcorn, Low Down Popcorn and Mashed Potato Popcorn: WFMU.ORG


Hey you all look out let a man come in
I got to have fun I'm gonna do my thing
Way over yonder can you dig that mess
The sister standing out there dressed up
In a brand new mini dress
Look hey over there
do you see that boy playing that horn
And dig that soul brother look at him doing the popcorn

Hey everybody I got a brand new start
Hey, hey everybody I got a brand new start
I ain't gonna hurt nobody
I just, I just I just wanna help my heart
Gonna have a ball sure as you're born
Gonna have a ball sure as you're born
I'm gonna dance, dance, dance do the popcorn

Hey look a there hey look a there
Do you see what I see
Everybody doing the popcorn but me
Get back over there with your mini dress
Look out good mama I gotta do my best
Hey over there hey over there look a here
A look a here I got the best band in the land
I just gotta jump back take my stand
I want to ask the fellows don't have no doubt
I just got to lay to lay it right out

I was saddened to hear about the death of James Brown to pneumonia, Steve Irwin was stabbed through the heart by a fish a few months ago and earlier this year Gene Pitney had a heart attack and snuffed it. I only hope the next celebrity death can be a bit more cheery. Perhaps Elton John can ski off a cliff and lie in a comical spread eagle shape in the snow below, or perhaps Barbara Striesand could be electrocuted by a Las Vegas slot machine, causing her eyes to spin in their sockets before finally settling on two jackpot signs setting off a cascade of silver dollars out of her mouth, Madonna could have an anvil dropped onto her head from a great height like in those Road Runner cartoons.
