Important Public Service Announcement

It has recently come to my attention that even 20+ years later many people (including but not limited to the blogger known as catchdubs) still think "Oh Sheila" is a Prince song.

I guess this is understandable.. in fact when our DJ Emskee spun "Oh Sheila" last week at his Brooklyn Museum gig, I was wracking my brain wondering which Prince track it was, until the vocals came in and I slapped myself.

But no, ladies and gentlemen, let us set the record straight once and for all: "Oh Sheila" was written and recorded by Ready For The World. The same band who, decades before R Kelly, pioneered the art of lyrical absurdity in R&B slow jams with "Girl Tonight" and "Let Me Love you Down."

These brave men and their bold jheri curls must not be written out of history!
