Do It Til You're Satisfied

Love at first note... It doesn't happen often… but when it does, it’s a very special feeling. Symptoms may include Goosebumps on the arms, butterflies in the stomach, chills down the spine, and the uncontrollable urge to move like you've been hypnotized.

B.T. Express
I fell in love with this song the very second I heard it while sitting in the back of the most influential music class of my life, I just happened to be sitting next to our founding father of EDAS. 

B.T. Express’s debut album of the same title had this effect on millions in 1974 as it spent weeks as the #1 on the R&B charts. The popularity and timing of “Do It” could claim it as disco but to me this leans way towards funk. The song quickly builds from bongos, to a funky guitar riff, to a bass line that speaks the chorus. That chorus tells you to enjoy life, find the things that make you happy, than do it again. Horns and organ join in later to complete the circle of this funk jam.

Stay hungry for the finer things this world has to offer. Art, love, music, friends, nature…. Whatever it is, Do it ‘til you’re satisfied.
