Well, well, well what do they say about when you wake a sleeping giant? I think there are a lot of giants around (like minded individuals) who have basically gotten to the point with this music thing that they are tired of the bullish and just like in that great movie Network they are not going to take it anymore.

I’ll Always Love My Mama – Happy Mother’s Day!

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

Happy Mother’s day to all the mothers around the world. Make sure you hug her and tell her that you love her, you only get one!

This can be an especially difficult day for those who have lost their mothers. I hope you’re able to enjoy and celebrate the great things that your mother instilled in you and reflect upon the good times you shared together.

Enjoy this TSOP (Love Train: The Sound of Philadelphia – Live in Concert)
classic from The Intruders, and more after the jump.

“I’ll always love my mama
She’s my favorite girl
I’ll always love my mama
She brought me in this world

Sometimes I feel so bad
When I think of all the things I used to do
How mama used to clean somebody else’s house
Just to buy me a new pair of shoes

I never understood how mama
Made it through the week
When she never ever got
A good night’s sleep”
