Express Yourself/Free Hugs

I dare you to watch this video and not smile:



The first time that I heard this song, I thought that James Brown was the lead vocalist but "Express Yourself" is actually a 1971 hit (peaking at #3 on the Billboard R&B chart) by Charles Wright & the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band.

"Express Yourself" played in the background of one of the all-time classic NBA commercials--an episode in the Nike "Barbershop" series featuring Chris Webber, Latrell Sprewell and Charles Barkley:

The Dunk, the Commercial--and the Aftermath

Words to live by from "Express Yourself":

You don't never need help from nobody else
All you got to do now:
Express Yourself!


Some people have everything, and other people don't
But everything don't mean a thing if it ain't the thing you want
