bj's gay porno-crazed ramblings
Saturday, June 01, 2002
A couple of weeks ago, while watching some porno (some old NOVA classic), I once again heard some cool discofied version of a familiar song, this time it was Stevie Wonder's As. And for the next few days, I was finding myself humming this tune, so I finally attempted an audiogalaxy search for it. Not easy finding a song with a 2-letter preposition as it's title, coupled with not knowing who did it. But a few hours on Google got me there, and I was hitting my head, because the electric violin should've clued me in that it was Jean-Luc Ponty - so here's his version of As. Even better in some ways was the surprise that back in 1986, Sylvester did a fantastic cover of Stevie's Living For the City. Then, a week or two ago, I'm telling all this to a friend, and he says, "Sylvester? Hmmm, you're saying that's a guy? Can't say I really know who that is" - sheeesh, men under 40 .........
