Here's one for election day. I'm not big on politics. Anyone who knows me knows this. In fact, there's not much else that other folks get all hot and bothered about that i find more boring- except maybe football. It's not that i don't care about what's going on in the world, i just don't... well..... Sorry. Politics just aint my bag. Never has been, never will be. Democrats, Republicans, or Independents- If you turn them upside down, they're all the same to me-- Assholes. It being election day and all, how about a musical representation of my thoughts on politicians old and new- Some silly nonsense.
"Senator Bobby Kennedy" and his rendition of Wild Thing.
I don't know why the record says 1962 on the label. Part of the 'joke' that i don't get perhaps? Maybe it's just a typo. The song Wild Thing was written in 1965, and the Troggs hit version that everyone knows was recorded and released in the summer of 1966. Robert Kennedy was assassinated June 6, 1968, and had only announced his intention to run for president in March of that year. So that's roughly a two year window in which this could have been released. On the flip side is the same song done in the same style by Illinois "Senator Everett McKinley" Dirksen who died in 1969 of natural causes.
