Review: Caro Emerald – Back It Up

The single Caro Emerald – Back It Up will remind you of those vintage swing records and jazz records you see at thrift stores such as Goodwill or Half Price Books. The single has that vintage electro swing sound with modern jazz.

Caro goes lusting after a man she wants to fall in love with on That Man. He knows he’s got it made with Caro.

Caro is in a little bit of trouble and is in real deep. From the beginning to the end. He was no more than a friend to her. The thought is makin’ her hazy. Because like the sweetest serenade, he knows he’s got it made with Caro.

Twisting around on a carousel. This speed’s too much to stop. One second she is thinking she is feeling the lust and then she feels a lot. That man is like a flame. A flame to her fire. That man is who she wants, desires, and lusts after. However that man plays Caro like a game. He plays her like checkers. Her only sin is she can’t win. She wants to love that man. That man is on her list.

Now it’s like Caro on a mission. Headed everywhere in every possible direction. And if it takes a little long and feels a little wrong, who cares?

My baby He fits the description of what Caro wants out of a man. She wants a man like the actor Fred Astaire. That is what the lyrics, “A little Gable, some Astaire” indicate/imply. She can hardly breathe when he dances. And does it easily. Someone call a doctor as Caro needs some help to rescue her. One second she is thinking she might be lost and he keeps on finding her.

Back It Up is a swinging jazz song which will make you want to dance. In this swinging jazz song, Caro doesn’t want the dance to ever end, so she demands the song “back up” and play again.

Caro can’t stop shaking. The room has a groove and the floor. It’s almost earthquaking. History is being made out on the floor and it’s just awaking.

So DJ get that needle in the core. Scratch that back and give Caro more. You know exactly what Caro came here for. Back it up and do it again. From the middle to the top to the end. Back to the middle to the front to the end. From the front to the middle to the back to the end. She doesn’t care if he’s a friend. Back it up and do it again.

DJ give her some of that funky. The kind that the Duke Ellington used to play and make it more swingy. And then give her a some horny horn selection/section. Slam that bass and make it sing. Give those strings that rip ‘n’ zing.

I rate this single 5/5*****!
