Get Up And Drive Your Funky Soul - James Brown (Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off, 1973)


I know that you are preparing to fight. Your efforts are futile. You cannot fight me. I do not want to kill you. I have great respect for the teachers of Hogwarts. I do not want to spill magical blood. Give me Harry Potter, and none shall be harmed. Give me Harry Potter, and I shall leave the school untouched. Give me Harry Potter, and you will be rewarded. You have until midnight."— Lord Voldemort’s ultimatum, leading to the Battle of Hogwarts


Beverly Theatre, Los Angeles, August 20, 1983 - The Godfather of Soul, James Brown surprises the audience and introduces to the stage a 25 yr old Michael Jackson in his prime– a couple weeks after the highest selling album of all-time, “Thriller,” destroyed the pop charts. A rare and amazing passing of the torch in music history.
