@hingehead,
Being um, mildly insane myself, I have an awareness of this sorta thing.

Anyway, insanity can be healthy if it keeps me moving about.

@hingehead,
Not at all, two twenty something men playing pranks on their dads who is very Australian and very angry.

This is their favourite, there is a honk if you're horny sign on the back of his car, and he doesn't know.



My kids don't prank me.

@izzythepush,
I'm guessing you had few more kids and and the survivors were the ones who learnt not to punk their dad.

I just heard the former and was immediately reminded of the latter.


They're both club songs at heart and from 1984, when there were a lot of synthesizers in pretty much anything with a beat. Ross's song is in a lower key and seems overly serious; Madonna's is playful.

@jespah,
Oh, yeah definitely hear that both have that mid 80s HI-NRG thing happening.

I thought I'd check to see if there was any cross fertilisation going on but not obviously. Ross' track was produced by Daryl Hall and Arthur Baker, while Madonna co-produced hers with Stephen Bray.

I think the Ross track was released first. Interestingly (if you're me) 'Into The Groove' was never released as a single in the US - it was the B-side of Angel.

@hingehead,
Hey, thanks for checking. It's odd that "...Groove" never got released as a single here. I think it was one of her better earlier songs.

Not so much a song soundalike as a vocalist soundalike

Ray Wylie Hubbard sounds like he has Mark Knopfler overdubs.



Maybe it was just the production on the Snake Farm album - he certainly doesn't sound the same live.

Just heard this first one for the first time. Couldn't think of what it reminded me of until suddenly I knew it was the second one.

War Canoe by Rolf Harris just came up on random (don't ask)

Take a listen before scrolling down to what I thought it was

























I thought Rolf was covering Adam and The Ants 'Prince Charming'.

Turns out Rolf was sample by Adam (which I'm not sure is completely true - in 1982 there was some digital sampling courtesy of the Fairlight CMI, but this is more like a ripoff).

I just heard Simon and Garfunkel's "Leaves That Are Green" and thought they were doing a reverse cover of Billy Bragg's "New England".

But it turns out they just have the same opening couplet:

I was twenty one years when I wrote this song
I'm twenty two now, but I won't be for long

S&G lyrics

Billy Bragg Lyrics

So what does the opening guitar riff of TV Slim and his Heartbreakers' "Darling Remember" remind you of - take a listen, guess, and scroll down.





















Did you hear the same thing I did?

A thinly veiled attempt to jump on his own bandwagon? Sounds just like the last section of his version of 'Mack The Knife' to me, all the way down to his faux Sinatra vocal scatting.

I think he was just into the sound in that instance. He was directly playing on it when he did Gyp the Cat.

So there I was, minding my own business when it registered with me that this first song from Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats had a rather familiar sound to it. After a few days it dawned on me, that Rateliff's song and performance started off similar to the second item here 8which was done years earlier)

And so, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats with S.O.B. ...followed by Thurston Harris and Little Bitty Pretty One

@Sturgis,
Oh yeah - the humming definitely - and the handclaps (although more groovy rhythm in Little Bitty Pretty One. Definitely a homage - right?

@hingehead,
Quite possibly.

Either way, two enjoyable pieces.to get the blood vessels awakened.
