The mighty Ashford and Simpson (funny hair!) lend some cultural welly to that nice President Obama

Lady, lady, lady

God bless Ashford and Simpson, of ‘Solid’-fame, of ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’-fame, of ‘doesn’t he seem like a gay and yet they’re married’-fame.

They have re-crafted their only proper UK hit ‘Solid’ – and that is a crying shame, by the bypass as ‘Solid’ is one of their worst songs. But like ‘Frankie’ was Sister Sledge’s only number one and ‘I Just Called to Say I Love You’ was the magnificent Steveland Wonder’s only chart-topper, often it’s an artist’s VERY WORST¬†WORK that catches the public imagination.

Anyway, anyway, as we were saying A&S have re-crafted ‘Solid, solid as a rock’, not in the way that we re-crafted it at school (‘Solid, solid as my cock’), but in a pro-Obama way, precisely ‘Solid as Barack’, in this case pronounced Baroque.

And it’s quite good and quite funny and they can both still really sing. Listen to it here.

  2. Please don’t forget that they actually wrote the genius track “The Boss”, pure classic disco tune!
