Clubbed In The Nuts With A Bag Of Ice
It’s something of an honor to get to host the OSW this week. I was just yammerin with EJ last week about tracks he was throwing together about moaning ass singers, like Case or Keith Sweat, and I mentioned I was listening to some music from the 70’s. Mentioned that they either sound like they were wearing their toddler’s underoos, or they’d been clubbed in the nuts with a bag of ice, and lo and behold, we end up with today’s theme. I figured I’d go with 3 different camps for the selections. I went with the classics that got me on this train of thought like Bloodstone, Blue Magic, or the Stylistics and whatnot. Then I went with more modern singers who sing like they had a frozen vice grip on their crotch, like Prince, or Brian McKnight. Then we added the song where there’s just the unreasonable high note, like they really did get hit in the nuts during recording. So here’s the list, and I hope you enjoy.
