One of the most sampled songs of the 80s – Feelgood Saturday 17th March

Following the success of last weekend’s Fairtrade celebration in Brentwood High Street, this morning I gave a mention to the many local businesses and organisations whom the local Steering Group wanted to thank for their support – including, of course, Phoenix FM! Brentwood truly is a Fairtrade Town, and it’s great to know that so many people are right behind this.

My clues to this morning’s song that was Acceptable in the 80s – a UK top 40 hit single that you probably hadn’t heard in a while – were that this 1983 jazz funk hit has been sampled numerous times, by the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Dr Dre, LL Cool J, Keyshia Cole and the Notorious BIG; and that it could be a song about an orange, or maybe a pineapple.*

*Acceptable in the 80s was Mtume’s Juicy fruit.
