25 June 2015, No. 105, The Gap Band, ‘Shake’

Every time I see The Gap Band’s name, I think of a tune that is not the one we’re listening to today. I think of “Beep a Freak” and that insufferable beeping thanks to Chris Carlin, who used to play it in his sets a lot. There will be more Gap Band on this list (how could we not do “You Dropped a Bomb on Me?”), and in two more beats per minute (or about 30 more songs) we’ll have Luke the Knife’s edit of today’s tune. No. 105 is “Shake” from The Gap Band.
