A House Classic
One of my favorite songs is “Lady (Hear Me Tonight)” by Modjo. It’s a wonderfully catchy, simple dance song.
The song has an interesting history. The irresistible guitar sample is from an old Chic song, “Soup for One,” which was made for a movie by the same name in 1982. The song was fairly popular, but didn’t become the anthem that “Lady” would almost twenty years later.
“Lady” is built around a sample from “Soup for One”, but it has a totally different feeling. “Soup for One”, as its title suggests, is kind of a downer…
