Kool & The Gang – Summer Madness/Winter Sadness

SUMMER

These are two of my favorite songs of all time. There are barley any words on these songs but what Kool and the Gang give you is fantastic melody. “Summer Madness” is the classic song which Will Smith took sample for his hit “Summertime” . The way the beat builds in Summer Madness is legendary and truly displays the artistic creativity of this group. Pac sampled “Winter Sadness” for his track “Picture me rollin”, but I must say I still prefer the originals to any remix or remake. These are songs I been listening to for years and hold a special place to me, as I grow older I find myself enjoying “Winter Sadness” more. Maybe it’s cause summer is fun and youthful and winter is cold and harsh, kind of like life.
