Have You Heard: Menahan Street Band

I hate violence. And for sport--ick. I cringe at the idea of boxing. Ironically, I love Rockys I-IV.* I think it comes down to the fact that I know movies are trying to manipulate me and no one is actually getting hurt.**

I also love soul/funk covers of Bill Conti songs from Rocky, like Menahan Street Band's Going the Distance.

It is safe to say I love anything and everything on the Daptone*** label, like I've mentioned before.

*I have not seen V or Rocky Balboa.
**I had a rough time with several scenes of Drive though, if you'll remember.
***Not to be confused with the Play Tone label, which let's be honest, I also really like, and have liked since I was a kid. Especially The Chantrellines.
