Barry White’s Philosophy of Music and Making Love, Animated

Blank on Blank returns with an animated interview with Barry White, the singer-songwriter who rose to prominence during the 1970s, recording songs that put us all in a loving mood. With hits like “Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love Baby,” “You’re the First, the Last, My Everything,” and “Love Theme” (recorded by his 40-piece orchestral group The Love Unlimited Orchestra), White reached right into our bedroom and tried to nurture the best parts of humanity and subdue the worst. As he says in the animated interview above, “When a man is making love, the last thing he thinks about is war!” (Yes, it’s a gendered comment, but, let’s face it, it’s almost always men that screw up the world.) Other artists and authors featured in the Blank on Blank animated series include Kurt CobainGrace KelleyJanis JoplinRay CharlesThe Beastie BoysDavid Foster Wallace, Jim Morrison & Dave Brubeck.
