That's them. Wilson Pickett got in on that one too. I knew there was that Kenner original, but I don't think I've ever listened to it. The Pickett version is the one I'm used to.
My fave Wilson Pickett song Is Let me be your boy, used to play it a lot when I DJayed. Just suffering in bed at the moment with my second case of Covid, much worse than the first.

Cheers mate. I had my first case of Covid for the last ten days, and finally tested negative yesterday. I was lucky, it wasn’t too strong but very tiring.
I hope you will recover soon !
Best !

I hope you get feeling better soon Sir. I never heard that song until I just looked it up. That's a ska rhythm if I've ever heard one

Hope you guys make a full recovery with no lasting 'long' symptoms.
Lost a godsister and my GP of 35 years to this.
Sad to hear of the passing of R Dean Taylor due to Covid. There's a ghost in his house, and unfortunately it's himself.
On a lighter note, my fave Wicked Pickett track is Engine #9 :

The utility of pockets on specific items of clothing is lost on me. I carry the exact same stuff in the exact same pockets whenever I leave the house, so if I was to use pockets on a cardigan, waistcoat, cargo pants/shorts etc (three items I don’t own and don’t expect ever to own!!) then what would I do with my gear on the days I WASN’T wearing said items? The answer is put it back in the pockets I use every day! (Wallet rear right, phone rear left, keys front left, pocket handkerchief front right!)

The only use for pockets on a cardigan is for when you become a grandad to keep a bag of toffees in there to lash out when the bairns come round. That’s what my ol’ pop used to do!?
I like the look of cardigan pockets, but anything I put there gets forgotten, so I don't use them much. What really throws me off is trousers with only one back pocket (i.e., some of my suits and my Barbour moleskin trousers). These days I carry a foldable KN95 mask in back left; phone back right; lighter, lip balm, miniature Sharpie, and money clip front left; slim pocket knife front right. Taking away the back left clutters another pocket even more.

I think the massive phones most of us carry these days look ridiculous in trouser pockets, especially in the front. More reason to wear a suit jacket or Harrington, I guess. The phone sure doesn't fit in the pockets of any of my cardigans.

Adding my best wishes for a swift recovery, Yorky. And I'm sorry for your losses, Inkss.
