Doobie Brothers, What a Fool Believes

Mayer Hawthorne covered this last night at Splore City. It was awesome – but I couldn’t help feeling a little bit cheated. That’s MY guilty pleasure! That’s MY dancefloor cheese bomb! Now the secret is well and truly out. Nice one Hawthorne.


What a tune though. I defy anyone upon hearing this not to smile like a loon and start happy clapping. I did it just now in fact. By myself. In my kitchen. I did it last night too, at 3am (at somewhat deafening volume too, judging by the speaker volume today – sorry neighbs).

Having said all that, the last time I did drop this publicly, at our Southsidesoul party a couple of Christmases ago, half the room jumped up and boogied; the other half looked somewhat quizzical, as if to say “You cheesy motherfucker”.

Let there be no doubt from now on. This tune is SOLID GOLD. So say we all.
