E-mile suggested me to make an intervention about "paint it black" concerning some recent developments in the "white" house...
I almost evocated the topic while posting Parliament/Chocolate city.
It was so subtile it was hidden.
But you can bet George Clinton is still in this one.
First : Comma or not comma?
Paint it Black.
Paint it, Black.
I vote for Paint it Black Panther.
Moreover, everybody knows the Rolling Stones have never been a rock'n roll band.
They always played rythm 'n' blues.
Anyway, the job has been already done in a one piece mix with talking.
(For die hard collectors only).
