1-2-3-4-5-6-7 (Count The Days) by Inez And Charlie Foxx, 1967







I heard this song for the first time today. I'd heard a few different songs by Inez & Charlie Foxx before, everyone's heard Mockingbird, but never this one. I had to hear it a few times in a row, because it's so perfect. I love ol' Charlie in the background, singing, "1-2-3-4-5-6-7". Also, isn't cool when the song's about a gal in the 60s kicking a fool to the curb because she's got a new boo? Well, anyway, just listen, I'm sure you'll like. You have to, it's perfect.
