Throwback Friday- Teddy Pendergrass/Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes “Wake Up Everybody”

Hey check out my mention on this post in MTV Music Blog… (update Aug 10, 2011: MTV Music Blog is now MTV Hive)

“Blog’d: Remembering Teddy Pendergrass, Health Trailer Still Tickles Sasha Frere-Jones” (blog post has been removed)

Ever since I heard about Teddy Pendergrass‘s passing on Wednesday this week, the song “Wake Up Everybody” has been in my head.  It’s such a fantastic, positive song about making the world a better place, but in nearly every report I’ve read nobody mentions it.  In light of all the things going on in the world today, it’s as relevant now as it was in 1975.  At the same time, I’m the same person who posted a Throwback Friday tribute to Michael Jackson that was a duet he did with Roberta Flack in the children’s classic by Marlo Thomas “Free to be You and Me” called “When We Grow Up” (see “Throwback Friday- Michael Jackson and Roberta Flack ‘When We Grow Up’“).  Pay attention folks, I got some good stuff up my sleeve.  😉

I recently posted information on “VH1 Rock Docs” paying tribute to “Soul Train” (see “VH1 Rock Docs presents ‘Soul Train: The Hippest trip in America, Feb 5, 2010“).  In light of both events I find it fitting to post Teddy Pendergrass performing “Wake Up Everybody” on Soul Train back in 1975 with Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes.
