The Music: Archie Bell & The Drells – Tighten Up

Archie Bell and The Drells

So whilst walking through the icebox that is the outside world to get my lunch today, the most appropriately warming song came on my iPod…

Tighten Up by Archie Bell and the Drells is a funk-filled song about a dance and surely there’s nothing that can heat you up like an old skool shuffle. Admittedly I wasn’t about to break out in the middle of the street (though I do enjoy mini-ipod parties in my stairwell at work but that’s another matter…), I did put my high spirit’s into a very happy strut instead.

I could never be mean enough to leave you all out in the cold when I’ve discovered such a warming wonder so I’ve shared the track below for your enjoyment.
