Raekwon "Close to You"
Published Sep 04, 2014It's Thursday, which means your friends will surely flood their Instagram feed with pictures of themselves as babies. Throwback Thursday also applies to Wu-Tang chef Raekwon, however, who is back with yet another flip of a vintage single.
This week, Rae offers up a remix of Gwen Guthrie's "(They Long to Be) Close to You," itself a cover of Hal David and Burt Bacharach's 1963 weeper that was popularized by the Carpenters. Guthrie's version is a hell of a lot funkier, with not a single acoustic guitar to be found, so it works well as the backdrop for a new Raekwon joint.
