While traipsing through the prolific career of songwriter Lamont Dozier last Friday on The Morning Shift, host Tony Sarabia played a more curious cut from the Motown luminary’s catalog—1981’s “Cool Me Out.” Dozier declared (and Wikipedia decreed) that this song is a “beach music hit,” a term that perked the ears of Sarabia. Not wanting the music of his native Carolinas to go misunderstood, our own resident Shag-ologist Jon Kirby left a message at WBEZ, which aired yesterday inside The Morning Shift.
P.S. The song at that segment’s close is “Hey I Know You” by the Monzas, a certain contender should Numero ever mint a Beach Music compilation. Should said catalog entry ever materialize, this Lowlands-eque snapshot will certainly be in the running for cover images.
