From 1975, courtesy of Epic Records and my iPod shuffle, here is Essence and "Sweet Fools," an excellent Chicago soul single, written by Jim Peterik, the man behind "Vehicle" and "Eye Of The Tiger." This track blows my mind the two or three times I hear it every ten years.


Well, it's great record making, made even greater by the absolutely genius lyric, "Sweet, sweet fools, rat-a-tat, hey hey!"

And there ya have it.

It sounds like Chicago isn't too far from Philly.

Terrific. Agreed, the rat-a-tat hey hey is brilliant.
