So I heard this throwback this morning on my way to work. I really love this song. I was definitely born 10 years too late. I love 70’s and 80’s R&B. I always wished I had a big afro and some funky bell bottoms with funky platform shoes. I love the funk and soul of that era.
This song makes me think of my son when he was acting up. You know when you are driving along in the car and your kid says something smart? I used to tell him I was going to give him and “Oops upside the head” and sing this to him. An “Oops upside the head” is when he is in the passenger’s seat and you every so lovingly just reach over and give him a little smack in the back of the head. Nothing too rough. No, it’s not child abuse, it’s just a little reminder. A good way to say, “Hey! Who do you think you are?” or “Excuse me? Who do you think you’re talking to?” That’s what I like to call it, an “Oops upside your head.” LOL
Well, if nothing else, I gave him a good appreciation of the Gap Band!
