Fu Man Chu – Song Of The Day

Fu Man Chu

Back in 1968, Jamaican reggae icon Desmond Dekker recorder a song called “Fu Man Chu” and it is one gem from the man that’s worth visiting or revisiting. Playful, sexy, creepy, who would have thought that a character like Fu Manchu would make sense in a Desmond Dekker tune? It may make “no sense at all”, as the song’s lyrics may suggest but, as random as it is, it works beautifully and Dekker’s vocals are, as ever, hypnotic.
