Music for Monday: Curtis Mayfield, ‘Superfly’ (1973)

Curtis Mayfield sings 'Superfly' on TMS '73. A falsetto for the ages.

Happy Monday, Bionic friends. It’s time for a solid dose of music to chase the blues away. Today, we have Curtis Mayfield performing “Superfly” on The Midnight Special in 1973. Mayfield’s “Superfly” soundtrack was released alongside the film of the same name in July, 1972 and reached the top ten on both the R&B (#5) and Pop charts (#8).

“Superfly, you’re gonna make your fortune by and by
But if you lose, don’t ask no questions why
The only game you know is do or die…”
