Musical Interlude: The Man (2014)

I've been impressed with the diverse mix of music pumping out of Troy High's Ed Picken Memorial Field prior to football and/or women's soccer games. In the case of the two soccer games I've attended in as many weeks, one song stood out.

Aloe Blacc's "The Man" includes a portion of the chorus from Elton John's 1970 classic, "Your Song". Blacc, who rebooted Sammy Davis, Jr.'s "The Candy Man" for M & M's 75th anniversary promotion earlier this year, sounds like he was influenced by old school Motown, particularly the late Marvin Gaye. Judge for yourselves, kids.

Yeah, it's karaoke time. So what?
