Booker T and the MGs
When you listen to this song (Green Onions) what does it make you want to do? Does it make you want to don a pair of roller skates and go gliding along the roller rink? Does it make you want to strut your stuff? If you film yourself 'strutting your stuff' to this song and upload it to YouTube then you can be the winner of 20 classic albums from the Stax catalogue, valued at over $260.
What? You don't know what Stax is? Well don't worry, I didn't either until I was schooled by Benroe who is a proud resident of Memphis TN. Stax records helped to create that sound that we all know and love called Memphis Soul or Southern Soul; Otis Reading, Wilson Picket, Isaac Hayes recorded there. Bill Cosby and Mom's Mabley even recorded there, not to mention Teena Marie, Lalah Hathaway, Angie Stone and more.
So, if you are listening to Green Onions by Booker T and the MGs and you find yourself strutting, pull out your webcam, film yourself and enter the contest at this link:
