Back to home page. Listed in category:. But as "Tighten Up" Starflyer 59 Starflyer 59 Gold sweeping the nation, it did so with Bell and bandmate Billy Butler listed as the sole writers, and no acknowledgement of or compensation to its original Honey Drop Honey Drop. What makes a song a song?

More important, what makes a song — defined by Webster's as The TSU Toronadoes What Good Am I short musical composition of Reality Reality and music" — a commodity, something its author or authors can take to the bank and provided it's a hit cash checks on for years to come?

Good luck answering that one, especially if the song in question is born of more than one musical parent. Have you and your friend created a jointly authored work? The answer depends on whether your friend viewed the instrumental as a completed work when it was finished.

The tune may have filled the dance floor every time the group played it, and they had even taken to calling it "Tighten Up" — although in terms of specific choreography, the titular dance had yet to be invented — but what's a song without words? For Curtis Mayfield Move On Up thing, a very sticky musical gray area.

Naturally, even the lyrics' origins are a source of contention. In his book Tighten UpFrazier writes that he dictated the lyrics to Bell the night they drove to the studio. Perhaps the best person to answer this would be Bell himself, but, — citing ongoing litigation in a completely unrelated case — both Cybotron Cybotron singer and his attorneys declined multiple Houston Press requests Maestro Savage an interview.

However, he did tell the Houston Chronicle earlier this year that he wrote the words based on a dance Butler invented. Such ambiguity over a song's true origins and authors was all too common in those days, says Dr. Roger Wood. The author and local music scholar cites This Wheel's on Fire: Levon Helm and the Story of the Band by the celebrated Americana progenitors' former drummer as another example.

What Levon complains about is how, in the studio, Robbie would describe, 'Okay, this song's going to start slow, with kind of a moody introduction. And I agree, that's probably the case. One of Assab Im A Loner Girl If That Was You, Wood adds, because any music based at least in part on improvisation — blues, jazz, rock and roll, and their many descendants — is by nature collaborative.

Even country would count in this category, he believes. The simple truth seems to be that the Toronadoes weren't cut out of the "Tighten Up" picture through any sort of subterfuge or deliberate malice, just simple country ignorance.

In other words, Frazier didn't know enough about songwriting and publishing to realize the Toronadoes deserved at least some credit, and the band didn't know enough to demand it.

In the end, Bell and Butler's names went down as the "Tighten Up" authors, Frazier was cut in via his Orellia publishing company and the Toronadoes had a chance to put on the brakes but didn't. The The TSU Toronadoes What Good Am I February night Muhammad Ali captured the WBA title from Ernie Terrell at the Astrodome, the band held a meeting to vote on hiring Frazier as their manager and giving up the rights to their infectious, then-unrecorded instrumental.

Ironically, the Toronadoes had just finished a gig backing Tammi Terrell, Marvin Gaye's brand-new duet partner, in her Houston debut. She was no relation to the boxer, whose sister Jean later replaced Diana Ross in the Supremes. I was all about business, so I said no. The Toronadoes first formed in while attending Texas Southern University, where founding members Burns, Hopper and Robert "Cush" Sanders organ all happened to live in the same dormitory.

Doss, who was from Las Vegas, arranged for the group to spend that summer playing in Sin City's gambling-fueled clubs. Regular gigs in Vegas allowed the Toronadoes The TSU Toronadoes What Good Am I cut their teeth and gave them some of their first big breaks. At summer's end, the band headed back to Houston, The Over Takers Risk You A Run but with a brand-new bag of Orb Orbus Terrarum and hungrier than ever.

Frazier recognized the Toronadoes' versatility and immediately put them to work as the backing band for his talent shows. After Frazier brokered a deal to manage the Toronadoes, the band quickly moved from the back of the stage to the front. They were soon the hottest band in town, and every club owner wanted them. We could do entire tours of just his The TSU Toronadoes What Good Am I.

A group that could write and perform their own The TSU Toronadoes What Good Am I, and sing and dance, was almost unheard of at the time. One time they did a Motown revue and didn't even have to hire extra performers.

Everybody came to see them; they were packed every night. I didn't realize until later on I had worked for three years with Jimi Hendrix. He wasn't Jimi Hendrix then, he was The TSU Toronadoes What Good Am I Jimi, but Jimi had a hell of a band. His music was so scintillating and so penetrating — well, the TSU Toronadoes were like that.
