[Knocks on ceiling with broom] Hey, keep it down, radio ad!
  Thu. 2/12/15 10:25pm Joe from DC:

Love that Presley record...even songs that he wasn't fully engaged on still sound better than most other records.

that Turtles song was awesome!

*revived once more to declare similarities between Groovies' 'Headin for the Texas Border' and Echo and the Bunnymen 'Doing It Clean'*
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/12/15 11:12pm Uncle Michael:

Damn...how have I not heard this version before?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:12pm JakeGould:

Nice! Hank Snow’s milking that cow for all it’s worth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/12/15 11:13pm Uncle Michael:

Milking Lucky Starr's cow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:15pm JakeGould:

I stand corrected Uncle Michael. I will now walk—fully clothed—into the Atlantic Ocean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/12/15 11:16pm Uncle Michael:

Hank recorded it in '62...as did Lucky. Lucky originated it and recorded numerous versions, related to different English speaking locales. Hank had the monster hit. Lucky was Australian, as was the original geography of the song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/12/15 11:17pm Uncle Michael:

Not all of my facts may be right. Working from memory...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:25pm JakeGould:

@UncleMichael: WFMU is one of the few places I enjoy being corrected, because the pop-culture knowledge here is deep. Seriously.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/12/15 11:27pm Uncle Michael:

I wonder if Rick Moranis knew about "I Ain't Been Anywhere" when he did "I Ain't Goin' Nowhere."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:30pm JakeGould:

@UncleMichael: Wow! Looks like odd… Wow… www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/12/15 11:33pm Uncle Michael:

Right. I'm just wondering if Moranis knew the version that Dave just played. I didn't and I've been collecting versions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:34pm coelacanth:

Hank Snow recorded "i've been everywhere" in '62. some time must've passed before this was created.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/12/15 11:35pm Uncle Michael:

In the meantime Johnny Cash recorded it too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/12/15 11:36pm Uncle Michael:

The original: www.youtube.com...

For after the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:37pm JakeGould:

Nah, you dinks miss my point. Uncle Michael is right. I mean “I Ain’t Been Anywhere” is better and predates Rick Moranis’ parody.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:38pm coelacanth:

when was that? the only Cash version i can find on the web is the one from american recordings. ('96)...but i would've sworn the one in a box set i have at home (not here) is much earlier. (?)

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/12/15 11:40pm Uncle Michael:

Yes, Cash was 1996 But he did it on his tv show many years earlier.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:42pm JakeGould:

@UncleMichael: Didn’t they use Johnny Cash’s version on some hotel/motel commercial?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:42pm coelacanth:

Jake,i didn't know you had a point!...and i don't think i've heard rick moranis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/12/15 11:43pm Uncle Michael:

Yeah, I think Motel 6 or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:44pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: My point has been dulled by a nasty cold this past week. So fair enough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:45pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: Rick Moranis is mainly a comedian. SCTV. “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” and all that.
  Thu. 2/12/15 11:46pm Joe from DC:

So, my computer froze up during Johnny Nash, and the player stuttered on MONKKKKKKKKKKKEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY for about 30 seconds until I could cut the power. Is this the most perfect show or what?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:46pm JakeGould:

Here is Rick Moranis performing as the greatest backing voclaist of all time, Michael McDonald on SCTV. www.youtube.com...
  Thu. 2/12/15 11:47pm Spooky:

*gasp - try Rick Moranis as Tom Monroe singing 'Turning Japanese" sctv
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:50pm coelacanth:

Jake,i just didn't know i was disagreeing with anyone.
...and Thanks for the link!(i'll check it out later)

and Dave ...isn't that "red hot" Billy Lee Riley?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:50pm JakeGould:

I think I’m turning Japanese… I really think so. www.youtube.com...
  Thu. 2/12/15 11:51pm Listener John:

Lyrics to real rock music is nothing but satanic cyanide?
REALLY?
I always thought it was just people screaming!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:51pm JakeGould:

Thanks for the Lou Christie as well as the last 3 hours Dave. Fare thee well!
  Thu. 2/12/15 11:53pm Spooky:

The Gun Club another installment in the Flaming Groovies' hymnal? God we are spinning out of control AND I LOVE IT by every simian hair on your body
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/12/15 11:53pm coelacanth:

Great song!

Killing me again with Flo and Eddie. Good night

Rick Moranis' version is on his Grammy nominated album "The Agoraphobic Cowboy."
