Bobby Caldwell is a longtime crooner and someone that can rightfully say he’s big in Japan. Bobby’s classic track, “What You Won’t Do for Love,” is his most recognizable hit, but in this episode Joe and Toby show how Common sampled another Caldwell track, “Open Your Eyes,” for his iconic song “The Light”.
What we geek out over in this episode: Bob Marley and real estate, TK Records, John Lennon’s “Whatever Gets You Through the Night”, Biz Markie and the the Grand Upright Music case, KC and the Sunshine Band, heart shaped records, deceptively white guys, Peter Cetera and Amy Grant, girlfriends that “go to another school”, Mr. Mister. Cool Uncle, Philip Bailey, Bid Daddy Kane, The Source, No ID, Ice Cube and diss tracks, Stevie Wonder, the movie “Selma”, Flamingosis.
Bonus Material: Other tracks that sample Bobby Caldwell, including from 2Pac, Biggie, and Lil Nas X.
