Who would win in a fight, 1972 Bill Withers or 1972 Lou Rawls? An actual fight.

I take Bill Withers if it is one on one, but if they have their backing crew behind them, I give the edge to Lou Rawls.

Bill Withers was jacked, but Lou seemed really tall. Probably wore hard, shiny shoes if we're talking street fight.

Bill Withers by TKO.

And then the crowd would party with Lou Rawls' music

I've publicly sung four times in the last 30 years and that song was sung three of those times.

And the fourth was "You've Got Another Thing Coming" by Judas Priest.

I never knew most of those versions existed. Lulu really belts it. Still, that song isn't that great to be covered like it's "Louie Louie or something. And anyway, I'd rather feel good than alright.
