The Monkey Time


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
A Curtis Mayfield original recorded by Major Lance (no kidding) and was a hit in 1963. This came out on Ohkay records. The original arrangement was by house producer Davis if I recall, and the phenom gave enough strength to Okey to push on a couple more years. It might be useful to all you record producers, and certainly you Wokeadelics, to learn the details of the Ohkay story.

I was working on my piece "Poodle Tricks" and I needed a break, I went on a listening trip to a different site online, there was disturbingly hateful music there and in reaction immediately created this piece.
All the monkeys will enjoy, I am certain... or something.

Antidote or siren? I do not like my singing voice at all, which is why it always gets twisted and mangled by whatever I can find to put on it... Thanks for your support.

Awesome
I've listened to this a few times since yesterday and have danced around like a monkey every time. (no feces thrown.....yet)
So much fun.
Thanks for sharing your music here

Hello Jay
Thank you for listening. Hopefully you can reach the point where throwing feces is normal. That's the message in the mass media right now, master must be happy with us ya know...

We live in "interesting" times
I searched out the original (it's not difficult to find!) and it's really a cracking tune. I like the small lyrical changes you've made and how you have taken ownership.

Hatred and fear is encouraged and it's not a pretty look, unlike this tune which is a delight to listen to.

Kudos Mr D

Cheers

Hello Dick
It was a cracking toon, now it's a Daug tune! Getting that monkey to play guitar on it was expensive, (lots of bananas)... but no expense was spared, it is remarkable how the rhythm of the original lent itself to the repurposing. Now the tune works perfectly to reflect what is happening in the minds of our delusional friends.

ready
yeah, those monkeys....
What strikes me in this piece but also in others that your keys often provide a circus or fair vibe, which gives it a satire feel, if you know what I mean..
well, all this world is a play ;-)
very much enjoyed..
Liked the ending as well

Satire in effect
Yes. That is was I am going for... Nice when someone who gets what is happening opines! Thanks KC I am good for another one now... Satire and parody are intelect on the offensive. It is sorely needed in these monkey times.

Been here since the place opened. I hope you enjoy yourself here at MJ. In fall 2009, I erased the 60+ tunes I had posted since day one. MJ had changed, becoming hateful and repressive, and I needed to respond appropriately. What happe... [see more]
