Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

I'd rather have the excessive vibrato than the Krauss/Parton/Isaacs over-breathy

Uncanny, KWilde!

Man Donovan was really deep into his Dylan bag in '64, wasn't he?

Butthole Surfers up next I take it...

I actually also thought you might play Universal Soldier
  Fri. 10/26/18 1:03pm frenchee:

This is a fun fun (fund-raising) game!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/26/18 1:08pm Fuzzy:

Harder than it looks (sounds) -- don't kill the cover chain with stupid choices like the Surfers, for example.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/26/18 1:13pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

It's a great chain, thanks!

So... this game could potentially swing back around to The Turtles and then bifurcate into a completely different universe.

almost the same song as "It's Your Thing " by the Isley Bothers

  Fri. 10/26/18 1:49pm frenchee:

every song makes me wonder who's next (or should I hint more broadly and type WHO's NEXT?).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/26/18 1:53pm Uncle Michael:

You sure it's the same song? James and Marva have no writing credits on the Isley's record. James wouldn't let that slide.
  Fri. 10/26/18 1:54pm Dean:

Isleys get credit here on Whitney's album: https://www.discogs.com/Marva-Whitney-Its-My-Thing/release/564870

Not exactly the same tune, possibly a response. Both songs from the same year:

I had no idea Don't Do It was a cover!

This show is apt because I heard Quiet Riot's version of Cum On Feel The Noize in the gym, which made me listen to Slade's version when i got to my desk.

"In October 1964 Gaye's single peaked at number 27 on both the Billboard Hot 100[1] and the Top 100 singles chart in Cashbox, with Cashbox affording the single a number 14 peak on its R&B chart (Billboard was not maintaining an R&B chart at this time)."
