Harem pants? We got ’em


Desigual CONCHA denim harem pants, $154…….. SOLD OUT

One of the hot items for fall 2014 are harem pants (Angel is sold out of all the Desigual pants shown here), also called drop-crotch pants because the crotch is loose and baggy and the legs taper at the ankle. The design originally was based on much looser fitting pants from Arabia. There is also a similar design worn by the hill tribes in northern Thailand called Hmong pants. Below are the four styles of Desigual harem pants we have in stock for the fall, including one for girls:Desigual denim pantaloons $154.FW2014Desigual Etnic pant $174.FW2014 Desigual Venicia pant $154.FW2014Desigual.kids.girl.ZUJAR.harem.pants.SS2014.41P3060_3022Desigual.Etnic.trousers.FW2014

Today’s music video is U Can’t Touch This by MC Hammer, who wore harem pants for this video (they were known as Hammer pants then):

Recorded in 1989, the song was released in January 1990 and was an instant smash, helping Hammer sell 18 million records. The song sampled the opening riff of this 1981 Rick James song, Super Freak:

Rick James had played in a Canadian band called the Mynah Birds with Neil Young and Bruce Palmer. The Mynah Birds recorded this 1966 song at Motown’s studio in Detroit:

Young and Palmer moved to Los Angeles and joined Buffalo Springfield, which released this song in 1966: For What It’s Worth, written by Stephen Stills:

And here’s Neil singing his Buffalo Springfield song, Mr. Soul,  in 2005:

The 1967 original by Buffalo Springfield of Mr. Soul:

Later the same year (1967), Buffalo Springfield recorded their second and final album, which contained this song, Rock & Roll Woman:

Co-written by Stephen Stills and David Crosby, the song was about Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane. When the band broke up, Stills and Crosby formed Crosby Stills and Nash (with Graham Nash of The Hollies) while Young went on to start his solo career, later joining Crosby Stills Nash & Young. Buffalo Springfield did this reunion benefit concert in 2010:

Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing. Buffalo Springfield reunion at a Bridge School benefit:

Buffalo Springfield reunion: Written about Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane while  jamming with David Crosby at his house. Said Steven Stills: :We got hung up on the F to D change in D-modal, which is mountain minor tuning. We kept playing it over and over and over again.”:

The original Buffalo Springfield version, which has a more sprightly tempo:
