THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
334-Mott The Hoople-All The Young Dudes.
1972-Number 3 single.
Best Bit-At 0.54.A dude is a term of address for a man.In the late 19th Century a dude was a person who dressed outlandishly.In the 1970’s Glam Rock gave people the opportunity to cross dress,maybe giving Aerosmith a good idea for a song title.
The song originated after David Bowie came into contact with Mott The Hoople bass player Peter Watts and learned that the band were ready to split due to lack of commercial success.
It is said Bowie wrote the song in less than 30 minutes and had Mott The Hoople(see also best songs 661) not recorded it Bowie would have added his version to the classic ‘The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust’ Album.
Bowie offered Mott The Hoople ‘Drive In Saturday'(see best songs 807) as a follow up single but they chose to record their own material instead.
‘Man I need a TV when I’ve got T Rex.’

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
340-Funkadelic-(Not Just) Knee Deep.
1979-Has never charted in the UK.
Best Bit-At 2.32. The ‘Freak’ in this song is a dance and like ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll’ has that naughty double entendre interpretation.
The mastermind behind Funkadelic is George Clinton.His musical career began in the late 1950’s when he formed the ‘Doo Wop’ group The Parliaments.Over the years he developed his music adding Soul,R & B,Rock and Funk,as well as incorporating many original ideas.
Due to contractual problems with his record label he had to record under different names,one was Parliament(see best songs 612) which leaned more towards Soul and Funk and the other was Funkadelic which incorporated more of a Rock sound influenced by the work of Jimi Hendrix.
Clinton working with many others would release several Albums by both groups in the 1970’s.The music was to become known as ‘P-Funk,’ meaning Parliament,Funkadelic.
Clinton’s music was to become a very important part in the development of 1980’s Hip-Hop with several influential artists such as Dr Dre and De La Soul sampling his songs.
‘Not just knee deep she was totally deep when she did the freak with me.’

Swimming through sick lullabies
