From 1975, please enjoy Godfather of the British Blues Scene Alexis Korner and a very sophisticated, even actorly take on the Rolling Stones' "Get Off of My Cloud." With endearingly nasal background vocals and guitar by some guy named Keith something or other.
Obviously, this isn't quite as epochal as the original, but there's something very charming and deadpan droll about it, I think, and I've been meaning to post it since forever.
In any case, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

An Early (And Surprisingly Posh) Clue to the New Direction
Subscribe to: Post Comments (Atom)
songs about the weather - Rainy Day Women, etc.
Not a bad idea, but no.
Non-Rapping Spoken Word Recordings not featuring William Shatner?
Cover Versions That Shouldn't Work But Do?
Keith's non-Stones studio work.
Dignified aged Brits.
Songs with contributions from musicians from other bands?
Songs by folks more known for their influence on the scene vs their recordings?
Songs with HEY,YOU!
Songs with telephone conversations?
Songs about insomnia?
Songs that mention windscreens!
Songs with HEY, YOU.
I like the sound of that.
Sorry to get off the subject at hand, but you really oughtta check out this brilliant Kinks cover!
Better than the original? I think it just may be!
Songs reworked or contributed to by the artists who recorded them originally.
Songs with lead vocalists who sing worse than Oliver Reed.
Okay -- one possibly helpful clue.
It has something to do, specifically, with the Stones.
Best Stones covers.
Most original Stones Covers.
But Sal's first guess was mine as well.
Stones solo projects?
Geriatric Rock Bands?
Ohhh, word verification "pacifier", goes well with my previous "malice"
One last clue:
I'm a lying bastard.
