Play that funky music, white boy…

Last night I was tooling around YouTube, as I am oft to do, and I found this incredibly hot 70s slow jam that I’ve always loved.  I’ve been kind of obsessed with it ever since.

Gino Vannelli wasn’t a one-hit-wonder… he had a few hits in his day.  But he proved to the world that Italian white boys can, indeed, crank out a hot slow jam.  

This video has it all: big– and I mean HUGE– hair, a smokin’ backup girl vocal group, cheesy camera angles, chest hair, a screaming crowd, and a tenor sax.  I mean, does it really get better than this?

Hopefully this will help melt your winter blues a bit. :)

  1. OH MY GAWD! I had the most massive crush on Gino. I will never forget the day my brother brought his LP home and we sat on his waterbed and listened to it over and over and over. Until my dad screamed at us to PLEASE play something else. Ahhh..good memories! Thanks Rick.
