Sister Sledge – Lost in Music (1979)

Pop pickers will make the obvious link with the last post.

In 1993, The Fall did a killer cover version of “Lost in Music” …

But this is one track that a cover version could never add anything to.

Unbelievable Nile Rodgers guitar over a killer bassline supplied by Bernard Edwards …. 32 years and counting, the Chic/Sister Sledge nexus has never been topped!

Already posted on this blog is the all-time classic “Thinking of You” (here) – this is right up there …

There has never been a Saturday night that wasn’t improved by hearing this ….

    I like the link, but I’m afraid I think I prefer The Fall’s version. In fact, I played it at my wedding. Which confused quite a few people.

    Controversial! The Fall version is uttelry superb but they didn’t have Nile Rodgers on guitar (although I think he did play on the seminal “The Man Whose Head Expanded” ….)
