First off, I can’t dance.
Now that we got that out of the way, I can tell you about an amazing song that causes me to willingly make a jackass of myself in public. For the sake of my social status I’m blessed this remained an album cut, but it’s unfortunate that “One Of Dem Nights” never hit the mainstream the way it should have.
The year was 2006 when Sleepy Brown released his slept-on gem, Mr. Brown. Though the album had production & features from Pharrell & both members of Outkast, Sleepy shined brightest when he kept the track to himself. “Me, My Baby & My Cadillac,” “I’m Soul” & “Get To it” all remain in my playlist to this day. “One Of Dem Nights” accompanies those songs in my everyday playlist. Yet, instead of simply bobbing my head like I do when I listen to most songs from Mr. Brown, I end up gyrating – no matter where I am – the only way this 21-year-old white kid knows how to.
