The Baddest Little Boogie In The Land

The good vibes in Ibiza are amazing

The good vibes in Ibiza are amazing. I'm feeling so good it should be illegal - and I didn't do any drugs - although I did just watch Pulp Fiction. The film's opening sequence features "Jungle Boogie" by Kool & the Gang and I couldn't get it out of my head. The telephone rang and it was Robert "Kool" Bell calling me. We had a bad connection and I couldn't understand what he was saying but I'm sure he'll call back.

Needless to say, whatever I did throughout a full day of interviews I had Kool & the Gang songs going through my head. The journalist were all asking me about my work - and though I talked about whatever songs they'd mention, in the back of my mind a "Kool" song was pumping. "Jungle Boogie," "Hollywood Swinging," "Celebrate," "Who's Gonna Take the Weight," "Get Down on It," "Ooh La, La, La (Let's Go Dancin')" "Funky Stuff," "Open Sesame," "Ladies' Night," and "Spirit of the Boogie." As I write this I'm singing, "Feel the Spirit, of the Boogie Band, It's the Baddest Little Boogie in the Land."
