Twenty-five tunes you've never heard because you were not listening. #25: Bob James -- Nautilus

So, so, so, here we go with the last tune of this countdown. I actually had not heard this tune until I began playing GTA: San Andreas recently. Yeah, I just started playing a twelve year old game 'cause that's how old farts roll.

The YouTube video mentions many Hip Hop artist that have sampled Bob James. To me, Nautilus sounds like it was directly influenced by Miles Davis. That's all I got.


Now that the first twenty five of my music list are done I am going to do a short list of bizarro cover tunes. This will be five to ten songs by some musicians which appeared in the first 25 along with some others. And, let's start it tomorrow!
