Tell It Like It Is

by Simon

This version of the soul classic is a live version by The Neville Brothers with Aaron. I first heard it on the soundtrack to 80s movie The Big Easy; I’m not sure where it actually came from before that. If anybody knows leave me a comment!

I’ve been thinking about my favourite performances a lot lately and this definitely fits in with that. I’ve heard a lot of different versions of this song but none are quite as…slinky as this one. In The Big Easy it’s playing in the background when Dennis Quaid and Ellen Barkin’s characters get it together. It’s definitely a good tune for those kind of moments….

A classic performance of a classic tune. It doesn’t get much better than this…
