Ancient Music ....

Early proto-metal ... The Gun :

In the same vein and the same year, more high-speed classical guitar from a young Dave Edmunds :

I don't know how my children discovered this (aha - it was featured in a Simpsons episode) but they went through a stage of singing it every day - until I was moved to seek out the source. The ski coach to Sauze D'Oulx isn't like this :

And some wonderful, classy slush which you'll either love or hate. Literate lyrics.

Love this guitar opening. 44 years ago. Beware of the loud volume :

Back to the roots - great song and great delivery by Jerry Butler. I'll have to get Randy Crawford's incendiary version onto Youtube :

Heh heh! Thanks for posting these! The Lesley Gore one is brilliant! So camp and over the top it's cool. I've put it on my own so-called blog. Marvelous stuff. Keep up the good work!
