THE MAN BEHIND SHAFT'S THEME SONG IS GONE
There has been many iconic theme songs from the movies - Jaws, James Bond theme, Indiana Jones, Star Wars to name a few. And right up there with the most memorable is the theme from Shaft. It was written and composed by Isaac Hayes. Hayes or Black Moses passed away yesterday at age 65. Blaxploitation movies would not have been the same if not for Isaac Hayes' theme from Shaft. Rest In Peace. Below is a video of his concert in Germany.
