80's Flashback

Scritti Politti, Wood Beez (Pray Like Aretha Franklin), 1984. Their first single to chart in the U.S., although it only got to #91. Scritti was much more successful with Perfect Way, the fifth single from Cupid & Psyche '85, which topped out at #11 here. I've always liked Wood Beez better, possibly because of its similarity (especially the bassline) to Chaka Khan's I Feel For You, both of which were produced by the late Arif Mardin.
