So I've been playing "Forbidden Nights" -- that new Darlene Love song (written by Elvis Costello and produced by Little Steven) -- somewhat obsessively since I first posted it last week, and at some point, my thoughts turned to other Phil Spector/Wall of Sound pastiches/homages.
And I decided that this is -- hands down -- the best one ever.
From 1973, please enjoy the incomparable Roy Wood (doing business as Wizzard) and "See My Baby Jive."
I mean -- wow.
I should also add that although I have no recollection of what b-side "Bend Over Beethoven" sounded like (assuming I ever even heard it, which I'm not sure about) I remain convinced that it is the greatest song title in all of human history.
