Nathan Jones Strange Sound Effects

I love this song, but there is one aggravating part to it that I have never been able to figure out.

After the first chorus there is, throughout the rest of the song, something that sounds like a gunshot the goes off. Is this to by symbolic of something? I did hear that this sound was created on an organ that had a damaged key and when you hit that key it made a gunshot sound.

Can anyone elaborate on this

Keith Hughes

I heard from Keith's sons this afternoon with the very sad news that Keith had passed away after a short illness - his contributions to the Motown reissues over the past few years have been invaluable.

Still Sounds Like The Flirtations RSD 2024 Release

Limited to 1000 copies for RSD 2024. The Flirtations are poised to release ‘Still Sounds Like the Flirtations’ – their first album of new material in 55 years. They are best known for their 1969 signature song, "Nothing But A Heartache”, off their debut album ‘Sounds Like the Flirtations’. That song spent 14 weeks on Billboard’s Hot 100, and its success saw the group tour with Stevie Wonder, Tom Jones, The Four Tops and The Temptations. “Nothing But a Heartache” remains an undeniable Northern Soul classic; it has been streamed over 13 million times, and in 2022 was remixed by Tobtok and Oliver Nelson. On their forthcoming album, which was produced, engineered, mixed, and co-written by Ben Rice [[Joan Osborne, Valerie June), Earnestine Pearce, Shirley Pearce, and Viola Billups aka Pearly Gates tell the stories of their lives. Drawing inspiration from the churn of personal, social, and political situations that they have lived through over the past five decades, they capture a timeless and well-earned perspective on love and life. The record, which features the Dap King horns, contains standout tracks, including the reflective call to action “Memories”, co-written by Stevie Wonder; the hopeful love song “Ain’t No Easy Way” and the instant dance floor hit “Didn’t Anybody Tell You”, both co-written by Grammy-nominated songwriter Gian Stone [[John Legend, Meghan Trainor); the uplifting groover “Love Somebody”; and the roaring “Take It Back”, co-written by Dave Sherman [[Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Elle King). The recording process was a transatlantic adventure, with sessions at Abbey Road and Resident Studios in London, Degraw Sound in Brooklyn, and Creative Workshop in Nashville. Retaining the classic soul sound and melodic harmonies The Flirtations are known for, the album will not disappoint long-time fans, while also promising to bring their authentic, inimitable sound to a new generation of music. Track List: 01. Love Somebody 02. Didn’t Anybody Tell You 03. Ain’t No Easy Way 04. Memories 05. You Don't Live Here Anymore 06. [[Keep Chasing) Blue Skies 07. Take It Back 08.
