I am truly excited about bringing back Majic Mellow Music Monadys. This Monday I thought it would be fitting to drop a classic. With The Occupy Movement spreading like wild fire and people becoming frustrated with the state of the economy we are all just wanting to be loved in a scene of things.  Having this energy fill the country is slightly reminds me of the  stories and the visuals I’ve seen and heard about for the eras of the 60s and 70s.

I chose this song because sometimes I feel as if Curtis Mayfield gets overlooked because we’re always highlighting Marvin Gaye, Al Green, James Brown, Smokey Robinson and many others.  So as I put my bow tie on this morning I felt like I was in a Super Fly mood. So I hope you enjoy this oldie but goodie as much as I do.

Keeping you in that R&B mood

“Give Me Your Love” can be found on the Super Fly release which debuted in July 1972 on Curtom Records. It was released as the soundtrack for the blaxploitation film of the same name.

Its sales were bolstered by two million-selling singles, “Freddie’s Dead” (#2 R&B, #4 Pop) and the title track “Super Fly” (#5 R&B, #8 Pop).

Super Fly is one of the few soundtracks to out-gross the film it accompanied.  Due to its success, Mayfield was tapped for several film soundtracks over the course of the decade.
