15/04/2021: “Shoo-B-Doop And Cop Him” by Betty Davis

Slow and cool. Unabashedly liberated. Smokey and sultry.

Betty Davis was an icon, and this song is iconic. It’s also very feminist, especially by the standards of the time.

The growling bassline, foxy guitar and freestyling synthesizer develop that loose feeling throughout the song, finishing up with some horns and revitalised backing vocals.

The song came out on They Say I’m Different in 1974, Davis’ second album.
