You Got the Right One, Baby! (Uh-Huh!)

Sweet, the Musical Demon and the Lord of the Dance, was at the nightclub called "P3", sitting at the bar itself. He had to admit, it sure wasn't such a bad place to hang out (alongside that place they called "the Bronze"), of course. As a matter of fact, it was awesome. 

Then he heard the familiar opening strains of a very familiar tune... and began to smile. 

You know when it’s right,
You know when you feel it, baby
You hold it, you hear it, you taste it,
It’s right

Diet Pepsi
Uh huh!
Uh huh!

A neat voice, Sweet thought. Must be one of those cool and hip jazzy cats, almost.

He had to admit, whoever it was, the person sure had a neat voice. He knew what that was like. After all, he had been through history of music and dance, and seen Elvis Presley sing and dance, and that guy could move that set of hips as well as put those golden pipes of his to work. He had heard Ritchie Valens sing "La Bamba" back before that awful plane crash had taken Ritchie's life and the lives of Buddy Holly and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson. Sweet then remembered hearing the songs "Peggy Sue" and "Chantilly Lace" being played the night after the plane crash (as well as that sad event being dubbed as "The Day the Music Died" by the media), and smiled a bittersweet smile. 

Well, you three, he thought as he raised his drink in a farewell toast to the three musicians who had lost their lives on that fateful February day, may you live on forever in our hearts, and especially mine.

You got the right one, baby!

(Uh huh)
Ooh, yeah!
(Uh huh! Diet Pepsi)

If it’s irresistibly sippable,
incontestably tasteful and imminently wonderful

You got the right one, baby
(Uh huh!)

(You got the right one, baby!)

You know when it’s right,
you know it’s tasty

(You got Diet Pepsi, uh huh!)

Uh huh!

(Uh huh!)

Uh huh!

You got the right one!

If it’s irrepressibly lovable, unsurpassably colorful and imminently soloful,

You got the right one, baby!
(Uh huh!)

Sweet then drained his drink, put it on the bar and then left, a tearful smile on his face. He knew that, although time passes and musicians pass on to new lives, the music they left behind always remained. The thought made his smile grow bigger. So many centuries of music, and yet there were still many more songs to be discovered. He knew that for sure. 

Well, I hope you like this oneshot as much as I liked writing it. :)
