SONG: Rodriguez

“Sugar Man”

I recently saw the documentary Searching for Sugar Man which is basically about the mystery surrounding the musician known as Rodriguez. Sixto Rodriguez was discovered in Detroit during the late 60’s and his career looked promising. But his first two albums never caught on in the U.S. and he faded into obscurity. Unbeknownst to him, Rodriguez became a household name in South Africa during the Apartheid. The doc is really a story about the human spirit and it’s incredibly uplifting. It was  filmed brilliantly and it features music from Rodriguez. The song “Sugar Man” stuck with me the most:
