ROCK Sex: "I Thank You" - Sam And Dave > ZZ Top

ROCK Sex says your kiss is "so good I had to hollar for help!"


The original version of "I Thank You" was set loose by the impossibly cool Sam And Dave. It was written like most of their hits by the secret soul men, Dave Porter and Isaac Hayes.

They were backed by the magnifincent Stax Records house band, Booker T And The MGs with The Mar-Keys horns.

FM Rock fans know it by the edgy Boogie version by these demented prospectors.

ZZ TOP -"I Thank You" (1979)

"Every day was something new,
You pull out your bag and your fine to-do
You got me trying new things too
Just so I can keep up with you!"
