Song of The Day #155

"Sookie, Sookie" by Don Covay

I'm not exactly sure what's going on in this song; the "Sookie" refrain doesn't make much sense lyrically or musically in context. But I love it nonetheless. In addition to the peculiar words and phrasing, the song has some very skittish guitars and a restless organ. And about halfway through, minimalist horns take over the mix, thereby completing what was already a thoroughly--or at least comparatively--strange piece of soul-pop-funk.
