Being a movie star may seem glamorous, until you see this interview Michael Caine, 80, and Morgan Freeman, 75, gave to a Seattle-Tacoma TV station, Q13, on Wednesday.
When the camera came back from showing a clip, his head was drooping way down on his chest. Freeman woke to nod now and then. And when answered the question: “What the key to being a great narrator?” He responded with, “Uh, probably just being a good reader.”
The last part is the best.
On this day in music history: March 31, 1979 - “He’s The Greatest Dancer” by Sister Sledge hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week, also peaking at #9 on the Hot 100 on May 12th. Written and produced by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers, it is the first chart topping single for the Philadelphia, PA based R&B family vocal quartet. Following their breakthrough success with their self titled first album and the singles “Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)”, and “Everybody Dance”, Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers will be offered their choice of artists to work with on Atlantic Records roster. They will specifically ask to work with the artist who has sold the least amount of records, vowing to write and produce a hit record for them. They will choose Sister Sledge, a quartet of sisters who are favorites of the label executives, but have failed to score a major hit while signed to Atlantic Records’ Cotillion label. While Edwards and Rodgers are concurrently working on the second Chic album “C’est Chic” and Sister Sledge’s album “We Are Family”, they will write the songs “I Want Your Love” and “He’s The Greatest Dancer”. They originally intend for “Dancer” to be for Chic while “I Want Your Love” is intended for Sister Sledge. They will switch songs, giving Sister Sledge “He’s The Greatest Dancer” which will become their long awaited breakthrough hit, and is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA. The song will resurface in sampled form when actor/rapper Will Smith uses the track as the basis for his single “Gettin’ Jiggy With It”, hitting the top of the Hot 100 in March of 1998, two weeks shy of nineteen years after Sister Sledge tops the R&B chart.

I’ve got a special edition one of these. It was made for the Juno’s a couple of years ago.
