Have you ever dressed as your favourite pop or rock star? Maybe in the privacy of your own home or at a fancy dress party? Have you ever thought about taking it even a stage further than that and maybe dressing like your favourite musician all the time? Perhaps even changing your name legally to reflect your dedication? Well if you have then you have something in common with a man formerly known as David Sanborn (not the saxophone player who played on David Bowie’sYoung Americans‘ album). The former Mr Sanborn from Florida is now known as Kraftwerk. He has been posting pictures on his life as Kraftwerk on his Flickr account.

Incidentally whilst I have dressed up on many occasions for fancy dress I have never dressed as a pop or rock star, well mot yet at least). I want to hear your pop and rock star dressing up stories or anything else that you have done to show your dedication to your favourite artist.

“I just want to stop and thank you baby” December 8, 2011


It’s December 8th and we’re at the letter H in this years ABC of Motown Christmas Advent calendar. Todays song is another Holland Dozier Holland classic, it’s “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)” from the supremely talented and sadly departed silky voiced Motown crooner Mr Marvin Gaye. As with the majority of Motown hits the music was provided by the Funk Brothers. Backing vocals were provided by the lesser known Andantes who appeared on more Motown hits than anyone except the Funk Brothers. Jackie Hicks, Marlene Barrow, and Louvain Demps were the ladies who made up the Andantes.

The song reached number 6 in the Billboard charts in the US and sadly only made number 49 in the UK when it came out in 1964. It has been covered by many people, perhaps most famously by James Taylor in 1975. That version reached number 5 in the US and included Carly Simon on backing vocals and David Sanborn on saxophone. Sanborn also provided sax on David Bowie’s “Young Americans” album in the same year.
