The Pasadenas; refrescante funky

The Pasadenas fueron un grupo inglés que, basándose en coreografías y sonidos que se les podría identificar claramente con el sonido Motown de los años 60, iniciaron a finales de los años 80 una corta pero refrescante irrupción en el panorama musical europeo. Mezclaban el funky con el Rhytm & blues y el pop, exhalando un aroma elegante y muy distante del rap dominante de la época.

Refrescante funky con canciones llenas de fuerza y energía como en "Riding On A Train", "Tribute(Right On)", o "I'm Doing Fine Now", contrastaban con otras de talante más suave y sensible, como en "Enchanted Lady", donde acaparaba el espíritu de Smokey Robinson. Todo un placer poder disfrutar de ellos con su estilo y sonido envolvente de nostalgia a los años 60 y 70.

Tribute(Right On)
This rhythm is a mama

Hey I want to tell you a story
It's about the groove
All Right now look hope here
Hope it makes you move
And get's the rhythm too
Yeah oh yeah

Well there's music from the past
Music for the young and old
Music revelation rock and roll and soul

So Right on .....right on
I said the beat was right on .....right on

There was Little Richard ( Tutti Frutti)
And Elvis too (shook up, shook up, shook up)
Way back in the fifties (way back, way back, way back)
There were doing it for me and you

Well I know there is way
With music we can say
These songs are in our blood
So let them play 'cos it's happening today

Right on right on
Right on (repeat)

And we see it all so clear
The music while we are here
And we need it everyday
No doubt about it we can show the way

Talking about Sam Cooke
Jackie Wilson was their names
Ever since then things ain't been the same
(ain't be the same)
Otis Redding God may rest his soul
Play back James Brown
How it slides I don't know

There's Motor City that gave us the motown tunes
They laid the foundation lord
And made Detroit some thing new
Yeah we're talking about Marvin Gaye
(What's going on)
Little Stevie ( For once in my life)
Smokey ( Tears of a Clown)
Supremes ( Baby love)

Right on right on
Right on (repeat)

Ike and Tina Right on right on
Aretha Franklin Right on right on
Jimmy Hendrix Right on right on
Sound of Philly The Jacksons
All these sounds are still alive
Blow horacle blow
Were right on right
Riding On A Train
Choo choo train is riding, all aboard ! 
Riding on a train 
Think of you again 
Your love has got me high 
You know I need you 
Since we've been together our love has been forever young 
So don't stop what you're doing 
'cause you do it right 
I have missed you so 
Don't you know it 
Babe ? 
And I can't wait to hold you in my arms 
I'm riding on this train for you. 
Riding on a train 
Think of you again 
Got myself a ticket 
First class one way there 
You're my destination valentine 
Now the train wheels are turning 
Got my heart burning. 
Hold me tighter 
Oh yeah 
Now I see your face shining brightly 
I'll never leave you again 
'Cause I'm staying home 
Oh well 
I'm staying home with you 
Riding on a train 
Think of you again 
Choo choo train keeps riding 
We'll be together 
Choo choo train keeps riding 
We'll be together 
Sitting here on this train 
Wondering what I would do without you 
I don't know 
I don't know what's going on 
Riding on a train 
Think of you again 
Choo choo train keeps riding
Choo choo train keeps riding
