Hummingbird - You Can't Hide Love

The other night I went for a cruise. I stopped by the ocean and watched the sunset. Then went downtown under the bridge and chatted with some hooker. Then I went a few blocks, got out of my car, walked in front of another car and pulled them out of their car, and stole their ride. Later I got kinda bored, so I crashed my car into a police car and had a shoot out with the police. It took a few minutes, but I stole another car and got away. Then this came on the radio..Hummingbird - "You Can't Hide Love". Oh, wow.... THAT tune! Fuckin' amazing. When I first heard that tune I wasn't as impressed. Again, I had my head way too deep into HARD funk, and the soft stuff just didn't move me as much. NOW, more recently...that's my shit. I'm not sure about carbon footprints, moral values, or what the real purpose is for drive/steal/kill video games (other than to just pass some time). But, I'll tell you they have definately figured out how to expose music. I remember hearing Oliver Cheatham's "Get Down Saturday Night" and being like 'wow, yes! THAT glad that's on here' (when I heard it) on an earlier version of Grand Theft Auto. They made me want to play that tune out again. Same with this Hummingbird track. A definate jewel of an unknown soul song, by a long lost group. Can you believe even FELA KUTI is on Grand Theft. That's amazing. I gotta say to the video game kids, nice work. burn rubber bitches.
