More ghosts from the 70s: Lou Rawls

The 1970s are popping up alot this week, it seems. Besides MJ and Farrah, there is this film clip from the new Ice Age movie (Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs) that features the hit classic “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine” from the great Lou Rawls.

When I was growing up in the 70s, there was a morning radio show that I swear played this song every morning before school for…I dunno….months, at least. (Along with an advertisement for chainsaws, so now, when I recall going to school, I think of Lou Rawls and chainsaws).  That aside, it IS a great song. And if you want to see it done by Mr. Rawls himself, it’s here:

Very 70s — the song is from 1976 — but Lou Rawls is smooth in any decade.


The Inventiveness of Michael Jackson

Of the many things being written about Michael Jackson, this one caught my attention. According to this CrunchGear post:

“some of the equipment he used was so creative as to warrant a patent”

If you go here, Michael Jackson, king of pop and.. inventor?, you can get the details, including a link to the patent (with his name on it). Also,  you can see an embedded video with showing the patent in action. Very cool.
