Need To Update My Out Paradin’ Music

Of course the instrumental version of Keep on Truckin’ by Eddie Kendricks has held me in good stead for many a day when I’m out paradin’. I have bearers holding a portable music device of some sort — one to hold it and one to pay out the extension cords — who parade behind me while I truck and truckle with the passersby. I usually have a few extra out front to shove the uncool into the gutter and clear the decks. Of course when I’m in my sedan chair, I simply mount the Realistic speakers to the roof and keep my Onkyo dual cassette deck and a Marantz receiver inside with me, and alternate between a pope wave and a queen wave at the windows, with an occasional “two left hands” Egyptian motion with horizontal head bob thrown in.

But time marches, or parades, on, and I feel I need to refresh my peripatetic shimmy shanty. I’m thinking of swapping over to Uncle Rico music instead:

So unless you guys have a better idea, you best step aside when you hear that Uncle Rico train a’comin’. A woodworker is approaching.
