13 March 2012 - Walter Murphy - A Fifth of Beethoven / Robin Thicke - When I Get You Alone

I was a kid in the late 70's.  So, everywhere I turned, there was disco.  Saturday Night Fever was exploding, and even I, in my young years, knew it.  And my favorite song of all, the young music geek that I was, was Walter Murphy's take on Beethoven's 5th Symphony.  So, so, so cool!

This video is from the TV show Midnight Special.  On the recording, for the movie Saturday Night Fever, Walter Murphy played all the instruments himself, but he could not do that live.

Of course, this song, a timeless classic, did not need lyrics.  At least, I didn't think it did.  Fast forward about thirty years.  Alan Thicke's kid proves to the world that he has a really solid, soulful voice by adding lyrics to a sampled version of this disco classic.  And it worked - it really did.  It was just a different song.  I promised you that we would bring Robin Thicke back on this blog, so, without further ado......

I always knew that Alan Thicke's last name was good for something....
