Isaac Hayes is your daddy…

…figuratively.

If you were born in the 70s, there’s a good chance the Black Moses shepherded your creation with his music. His whole discography (pre-disco) is one continuous epic Fuck Song.

DOWNLOAD: Isaac Hayes – “(They Long To Be) Close To You”

From the album Black Moses.

This cover of the song made famous by The Carpenters fits more for the post-coitus-cuddling-cupcaking stage, but it’s one of my favorite Isaac Hayes joints.

O-Dub over at Soul Sides has transformed the banner and headline of his blog to honor Isaac’s passing. Please read his comprehensive tribute posts here and here.

P.S. – For those of y’all in the Bay, I’ll be spinning an Isaac Hayes tribute set at Devil’s Pie this Thursday @ Namu Bar in San Francisco.
