Clarence Carter "Making Love (At the Dark End of the Street)"

This is, quite frankly, one of the most ridiculous goddamn things I've ever heard. God bless him for recording it. And, yes, this is the same Clarence Carter who recorded "Strokin'," the only wedding reception standard about screwing, masturbation and sodomy I can think of which compels even your overbearingly religious Aunt Mary to toss aside the walker and shake her ass. A rhetorical question before we proceed: the man is blind. Isn't every end of every street the dark end in his world? And when he talks about driving a car way out into the country somewhere, I presume that he is a passenger on those occasions.
