Cymande: “Bra”

Originally released in 1973, this song first appeared on my radar during the Spike Lee movie, “25th Hour,” where Ed Norton plays a drug dealer spending his last day as a free man before heading off to prison. The song plays in the background during the sequence in the nightclub when Phillip Seymour Hoffman (playing a schoolteacher) decides to kiss one of his more “mature” students. The sweet funky groove and the addictive lyric “but it’s all right / we can still go home” has earned it a permanent place in my iPod. I only wish clubs played music like this in real life.
