MOTUnes Monday │ People Get Ready
March 12, 2012
Are you ready? Can you name a 1965 song written by Curtis Mayfield that has been covered by a variety of musicians, including Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, and Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart?
Need another clue? This week’s MOTUnes Monday pays tribute to this particular song, which features the chorus lines of “People get ready, there’s a train comin’ / You don’t need no baggage, just get on board.”
Ready to guess? If you’re thinking “People Get Ready” by The Impressions, you’re in luck! And for future trivia, here’s another fact: This song was selected by Rolling Stone recently as #24 on its list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.
