The 5 O’clock Shadow: Wednesday October 14, 2020

The original artist may be listening to WTMD right now. He has been a member of the faculty at The Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University since 2014.

The shadow version is a collaboration between a man better known for his acting career than his musical endeavors (although his music does have a unique quality about it) and one of the most well-known bass players of all time.

The original songwriter said of the song, “When I play it now, I still get a big kick out of it. I mean, I’m perfectly proud of the song, and it’s got a great groove and loaded with hooks. And when I play, it’s iconic, I think, for many people. Especially people who were around the first time. It makes people very happy.”
