The Musings of an Eccentric Diva

Welcome to the Musings of an Eccentric Diva. My motto is: Giving Hollyweird movies the finger one movie at a time. Enter at your own risk (insert evil Vincent Price laughter here).
 

ECCENTRIC DIVO AND COOL 70'S DUDE: Jimmy Castor



















I could not decide whether I wanted to make Jimmy Castor a Cool 70's Dude or a Eccentric Divo, but this guy is so fly I decided he should be both. Jimmy Castor is a singer and musician that is responsible for some of the funkiest songs ever put on wax. He is also one of the most sampled musical artists that many people have never heard of. Some may consider him a novelty act, but listen past the goofy lyrics and you will hear some the strongest musical content this side of the planet. This cat certainly put the fun in funk! With his group The Jimmy Castor Bunch, the band had song titles such as Hey Leroy Your Mama is Calling You, King Kong, Bertha Butt Boogie, and Troglodyte. These songs were hilarious and you could dance your ass off to them. The track It's Just Begun is considered an essential break dance classic and was featured in the film "Flashdance". The video posted below is from a local television show called Big Chuck and Houlihan that I LOVED as a kid and still airs in Cleveland to this very day. The show features B-movies,skits and other nonsense. The skit they are doing in the video is performed to Jimmy Castor's song "Bertha Butt Boogie". It is absolutely hilarious and depicts Jimmy's song perfectly. I was really shocked this was available on You Tube.

Cool Fact: Jimmy was the replacement for Frankie Lymon after he left the singing group, Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers.
