Friday Flashback: “Moving On Up” by Primal Scream

Here’s an uplifting song for you this Friday. “Moving on Up” is a hit from the classic psychedelic Primal Scream album Screamadelica and is generally accepted as one of the standout tracks. In this black and white video, the band make no apologies for taking inspiration from the 1960s as Bobby Gillespie does his best Mick Jagger impression. There’s a killer guitar solo and impressive gospel chorus. This track doesn’t get me up and dancing as much as, say, “Jailbird” or “Rocks,” but it does put a jump in my step. I hope it does the same for you. Enjoy.
