150 Favorite Songs, #148: He’s Got The Power, The Exciters
I first heard this song on a Girl Groups box set (one of the best presents I’ve ever received) and it stuck in my mind ever since as one of the most irresistible movers and shakers I’ve ever heard. It’s painful to listen to this song while sitting at a desk because all I want to do is jump up and start kicking my legs around and shrugging my shoulders and shimmying and clapping and twirling and smiling. It’s the very best of the Sunday Sock Hop. It’s got the power, the power of dancin’ over me.
