I’ve had the 1974 hit Come and Get Your Love by Redbone stuck in my head for three days now. When a song embeds itself in my head for longer than a day, I have to demystify it by Googling it and looking up versions of it on YouTube. Which is what I did two nights ago. Which led to my discovery that the group Redbone was a Native & Mexican American band. And that the members of Redbone chose their band name because the term redbone is historically a southern word referring to mixed blood. And that they formed because of the encouragement of their friend, a successful guitarist of Native and African American descent…a guy named Jimi Hendrix. And all of that is just cool.
A wonderful live version of the song here.
Now that I have exorcised the song in my head by putting it in yours, I hope that you enjoy singing it to yourself for the rest of your day. You can thank me later.
