I Don't Care What Holiday Is Coming Up, This Early Clue to the New Direction Stuff is Getting On My Nerves!

From 1966, please enjoy the fabulous Standells (featuring Larry Tamblyn -- brother of Russ and Uncle of Amber on organ and vocals) and their snarling garage punk revisionist take on the the legend of the Lone Ranger, "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White."



As always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded the first reader savvy enough to glean its relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Holiday Weekend Listomania.

No, no, no, no and yes.

Hmmm....I'm thinking of a hint....

Yeah, but good guys don't wear plaid slacks, either, even if they do play ultra-cool Vox guitars.

Libby Spencer said...

Okay, one more try. Songs about clothing.

If it's not ok to wear white shoes after Labor Day, does that make Memorial Day the start of white shoes season? (Can't think of any songs about white shoes... would Nights in White Satin qualify?)

dSmith said...

Songs with Red, White or Blue in the title?

Steve, not to quibble (OK, to quibble) imho, the version of this song by Count Bishops is vastly superior...vocalist Mike Bishop had a gravelly delivery that gives the song a much-need oomph infusion...great song regardless...
