Thank You For The Music, Mr. Hayes

Isaac Hayes - Walk On By

From the "Hot Buttered Soul" LP
I appreciate all that Isaac Hayes did for R&B/Soul/Funk music, but nothing he ever did resonated more with me than his cover of the Burt Bacharach/Dionne Warwick classic "Walk On By". His rendering is my preferred version of the song as a matter of fact. It is one of the sexiest songs I have ever heard in my entire life and it makes me want to do a dirty slow dance in a dark room with candles burning and a storm raging against the outside of the house. It was also featured in the last season finale of The L Word at the Lez Girls wrap party, it was the song that Bette & Tina were slow dancing to.

This is a must have for music collectors!
