Isaac Hayes “Hung Up On My Baby”


More love music.  Probably more well-known to most people my age and younger as the backing track to The Geto Boys’ “My Mind Is Playing Tricks On Me“, this instrumental cut from the soundtrack to the blaxploitation movie “Three Tough Guys” is smooth and rugged and psychedelic all at the same time, a synthesis of just about everything I like about pop music in the ’70s.  The guitar lick that counts as the hook here is just perfect, and as the song builds up to one multi-layered peak after another every noodly bit fits in, like I rarely hear after the disco era.  Groove on.
