Name That Lyric:Episode CXXIV

We have no winner from last...um...two weeks ago!!! Nobody recognized

"Now the years are unwinding
but I still feel the hurt
I've been fighting my whole life
for the privilege to work"


from "Forever" by Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul!! What ? You say you have never even heard of that song ? or the band ? You doubt it/they exist ? How dare you doubt my integrity that way?!?

To prove to you that song and band do, in fact, exist: Here's a video(I had two choices-one is the original MTV clip for the song, but the video and sound quality is not great, the other is a Youtube fan generated clip, where the video and sound quality is much crisper, but the images leave much to be desired. I could not decide, so I will post both.). This song is on one of my Top ten all time favorite albums- Men Without Women.I believe it is categorized as Jersey soul.

Here is the better sound quality



Here is the infinitely more fun visually, but poorer quality MTV video:



Now, onto this week's clue:

I had that sucker hypnotized
He couldn't even make a sound
I proceeded to tell him his future then
As long as he was hanging around,
I said
"The price of meat has just gone up
An' yer ol' lady has just gone down... "


Good luck, Crimestoppers !!!

I don't know this week's clue (again), but I dig the Underground Garage. Don't listen every week, but it's pretty cool.
