Happy Black Friday! I hope you successfully purchased that wildly discounted electronic device at your favorite retail shop at an ungodly hour this morning!
In honor of this day of manic consumerism, I wish I had a Mats cover of Steely Dan’s Black Friday. But they never seemed to veer towards Fagen/Brecker songs.
So instead I will just post another Stones cover. Here’s Heart Of Stone from the Uptown Bar in 1985.[audio:heartofstone.mp3]
Surprisingly good version for the first two or three verses. Whenever the Mats got loaded, doesn’t it always seem like Bob’s guitar is the first to go out of tune and stay that way?
Jesus, I’m glad The Replacements had an aversion for Steely Dan as much as I do. Great “Heart of Stone, er, Tin” Stones cover, mistakes be damned. Rock-n-roll is all about mistakes, after all.
I like the guitar tone of “Reelin’ in the Years”.
I’ll bet Bob Stinson liked it, too.
And Laura Lindeen. She probably likes it, also.
Reminds me of the now classic line from “Knocked Up”-
“Steely Dan gargles my balls.”
Laura Lindeen did a Steely Dan cover? Man, I’d like to hear that.
Kinda reminds me of the Husker Du song “She’s a Woman and Now He is a Man”.
Looks like Blasty didn’t get the memo. Man, ain’t it tiresome. Get a different record already. You’re barkin’ up the wrong tree, friendo. I’m cool, you be the same.
