My Music Monday
The subject was specific, no doubt - songs about tattoos that were released prior to 1990. Somehow I thought I could prevail, but alas, I could not. I couldn't even do it if it went right up to today.
Apologies to Erik. He can pick next month if he'd like.
I'll try to make today's selection somewhat relevant though. I was saving it for another 'covers' theme, but sometimes you do what you must.
The Folksmen, a fictitious group from Christopher Guest's movie, A Might Wind, has the honors.
Mind you, the Folksmen look an awful lot like Spinal Tap. Michael McKean, Harry Shearer and Guest are in both - and play and write their own music.....for both groups.
Except for this selection. The Folksmen take on the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up". The Stones originally released the song on Tattoo You......so that is the closest connection I can make.
I dare say, the song is better and funnier if you're familiar with the original.
