Song of the day: Jess & James – Move

If you ask people to name a 60’s pop song from Belgium, they typically come up with Daydream (Wallace Collection), Seven Horses in the Sky (The Pebbles) or Dominique (Soeur Sourire) – some of which definitely also belong to my favorites (I leave it up to your deductive skills, gathered from my previous Song of the day posts, to figure out which ones).

But another marvelous song is often overlooked: Move by the duo Jess & James, 2 Belgian brothers with Portuguese roots. The song was originally released in 1967, the video I am linking to dates from 1968 – you will appreciate the flashy and hyper-professional camera work. Some of you might also know the song from the 80s cover version by The Trammps, but as is the case with most covers; nothing beats the original.
