|Blowfly – On TV|
The world lost one of the greatest comedians recently, when Clarence “Blowfly” Reid passed away at the age of 79, thanks to liver cancer.
You might see the funny images of him and wonder who the hell this guy is dressed as a supervillain.
Well, he’s one of the more sampled artists who came out of the 1960’s and 70’s, thanks to his run of XXX rated albums.
Artists like Ol’ Dirty Bastard, The Pharcyde, Snoop Dogg and The Jurassic 5 have sampled bits and pieces of Blowfly, who also enjoyed a real career as a songwriter under his real name, Clarence Reid.
Don’t get it twisted. Blowfly could write real songs too. He wrote and produced tracks for Betty Wright, K.C. and The Sunshine Band, Sam & Dave and others.
Blowfly really flexes his chops on the records below, which we believe showcases his best writing and his great singing voice. Be prepared, after Blowfly’s versions of these particular songs, you will never hear them the same when they “pop up” on the radio.
Without Your Pussy I Can’t Live – Oldies But Goodies
Blowfly attacks Little Richard’s classic rocker, “Lucille.” On this tune, Blowfly offers up a hilarious take on the rather serious subject matter, STD’s. In this song, “Lucille” gives Blowfly syphilis, but her coochie is so good, he still can’t resist her charms.
Spermy Night in Georgia – Weird World
Here, Blowfly remakes Brook Benton’s classic song “Rainy Night in Georgia.” Blowfly manages to take Benton’s sad, depressing song and insert an insane amount of humor into it. For instance, Blowfly takes Benton’s original lines:
Hoverin’ by my suitcase, tryin’ to find a warm place to spend the night/Heavy rain fallin’, seems I hear your voice callin’ “It’s all right”/ A rainy night in Georgia, a rainy night in Georgia
Blowfly raunchifies Brook Benton’s lyrics into this:
Going to buy me a rubber/Trying to find some warm cover/To fuck tonight/I gotta get a nut before morning/Gonna have some bitches moaning and groaning all through the night/
It’s gonna be a spermy night in Georgia
