Anyone who’s ever seen Dumb & Dumber and knows the scene where Lloyd Christmas first finds out about the moon landing will understand how I reacted upon stumbling across Charlie Wilson’s remake of Roger Troutman’s classic ballad, “I Want To Be Your Man,” from 2010’s Just Charlie.
Let the record show Charlie and Fantasia’s version isn’t touching the original – which is arguably one of the best love songs ever. But, considering Uncle Charlie gets played so much around my house he’s like family and the fact that Roger is one of my favorite musicians of all time, there should really be no surprise I was so pumped. After all, it’s Charlie Wilson singing Roger lyrics. The last time that happened we got “Computer Love.” Nothing else needs to be said.
