Saturday Night Vinyl Quickie

Last year for Record Store Day, HRH  had her heart set on a specific record, a 7″ single no less.  But, alas, the local record store didn’t get a copy (much to her disappointment) so, of course, it was Uncle Lance to the rescue!  And tonight, seeing as how Uncle Lance is visiting us for the night to take in the Great Lake Swimmers show at The Sanctuary, we’re “pre-gaming” now (don’t judge!) by listening to ‘You Are the Sunshine of My Life‘  by Jack White and Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem (aka The Muppets).

White appeared as a special guest on the season finale of ABC’s ‘The Muppets’  this week. The Third Man Rocker assisted his amphibian friend Kermit in wooing Miss Piggy by performing this lovely cover Wonder’s popular hit.  Shortly after the episode aired, two different studio versions of White’s cover popped up on Apple Music.  The first features him with Electric Mayhem. The second, meanwhile, features the Nashville native alone in the spotlight, and boy, does he warrant all the attention. Steeped in soul and the youthful joy of Wonder’s 1973 original, White’s cover just might be his best solo song in years.

Now, to be clear, this is not the “It Ain’t Easy Being Green” green vinyl version of the record that you can purchase for the ridiculous amount of around $100.00 or so. This means then that if you do the math, this 3 minute long song is worth exactly $1.66 for each and every second of play.

Fuck no.

That’s total craziness.

This is just the ordinary black vinyl 7″ without any of the overpriced frills and she’s just as happy.  And, hey, even if you don’t want to pay the $10.00 or so for the single you can just listen to it HERE.

Or you can just find your own vinyl sugar daddy (i.e. Uncle Lance).  Not ours, of course…he’s taken.

About crazytigerrabbitman

I am a fat guy and always will be in the same way they say that “once an alcoholic; always an alcoholic”. Eventually I got upset about my poor health and ballooning body frame so I decided to change things for the better. Some people sign up for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, or whatever fad diet program it is that happens to be occupying the majority of air time on the boob tube. Other people prefer to run out and purchase the latest, fold away, piece of shit being hawked by some celebrity has-been. Me? I decided to take up triathlon. I had abused my body over the years with bacon cheeseburgers, pints of beer and double-dipped donuts, and the time had now come to abuse my body with physical exertion, perseverance and hard work instead; penitence in it's purest form. The time had come to kick my ass. I am Terry Nash and I am the “fat and the furious”.
