Soul Busters!

At the end of the clip of Dave Letterman (see previous post) I noticed that Paul started playing "Soul Finger" as they broke to commercials.

And then it hit me... I said to myself, "Self, you know what other song sounds a lot like this?" Myself replied, "Ghost Busters?"

So out of curiousity, I went out and download both songs to see how similar they are. Get this. They're both in the same key AND have the same tempo! Although, the Bar-Kays don't keep a very exact beat so they get out of sync sometimes. And the roadmaps of the pieces are obviously different. But the main parts are the same.

So I made a mix. :) It's short, but it demonstrates how similar they are. I didn't feel like mixing a full-length song out of them, but that might be a fun project some rainy day.
