The Endless Note

Sly Stone

He was the ’60’s funk soul brother number one, but a voracious appetite for drugs, money and excess caused him to crash and burn during three decades in a paranoid wilderness. This week’s news that the super-reclusive Sly Stone has signed a new record deal (an album is slated for release in 2010) follows a tentative two year-return to public life that has done nothing to diminish his reputation as one of music’s most bizarre, intriguing characters. And it’s not just the possibility of new Sly music that’s on the cards; two new documentaries are set to chart his stratopsheric rise and tragic fall when they hit screens over the next 12 months. You can watch trailers for both films here. In the meantime, let’s remind ourselves of a time when Sly & The Family Stone gave the love generation something to funk about.

Saturday Morning

“Saturday Morning” – eels

Saturday morning
And who’s gonna play with me
Six in the morning baby
I got a long long day ahead of me

The parents are sleeping soundly
The neighbors are dead as wood
I’m getting up and coming over
We gotta rock the neighborhood

Nothing’s ever gonna happen ’round here
If we don’t make it happen
Sleep away the day if you want to
But i got something that i gotta do

It’s saturday morning
And this ain’t the place for me
I’m giving you warning baby
We got a whole big fat world to see

Nothing’s ever gonna happen ’round here
If we don’t make it happen
Sleep away the day if you want to
But i got something that i gotta do

It’s saturday morning
And who’s gonna play with me
Six in the morning baby
I got a long long day ahead of me

Here is a video for another track (In MyYounger Days) from the forthcoming January album release “End Times”
