Don't you let nothing, nothing stand in your way

After yesterday's epic journey across chaotic Tube-strike-hit London, I am hoping for a rather more leisurely countdown to the weekend, back in the office. At least, if they're fighting to get on buses this morning, I can easily walk it...

To assist our quest to get to five o'clock without committing assault, here's the late, great duo McFadden and Whitehead - with a bevy of hairsprayed-to-oblivion ladies wearing what appear to be oversized headscarves over pedal-pusher jeans; a nice look - and the classic Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now.

Thank Disco It's Friday!

An integral part of the powerhouse that was Gamble & Huff's 'Philadelphia International' label in the 1970s, McFadden and Whitehead wrote Back Stabbers for The O'Jays, Show You The Way To Go for The Jacksons, and were producers for (among others) Archie Bell & the Drells, Melba Moore, Gloria Gaynor and Freddie Jackson. This is the only song on which they actually sang that anyone remembers, however...

Have a lovely weekend, one and all!
