I caught this video once on MTV2, many years ago. I was intrigued. And then, for years, I could not remember the artist. I did remember the outstanding bassline hook - one of the best I've ever heard - and the huge, huge voice. And the clapping! It was one of my favorite pop songs of all time.
Fast forward a couple of years. "Desperate Housewives" was on the air and using a song called "Everybody Got Their Something" in their advertising. I didn't know who performed it, but I knew some of the lyrics, of course. I went looking for that song to download and found the whole album of the same name.
Guess what was track 1?
I never forgot again.
