I've said it many times before, but this is the pizza of songs. Just as I'm always in the mood to eat pizza, no matter what, and will love it, so I'm always in the mood to hear this song, no matter what, and will love it.
what a blast from the past. i used to listen to this on an old am station.KOBO. they had great call in contest. my bro SAM would always win stuff like cases of soda. man good times i would not like to relive them but great to reminisce.
I could never place which parts were Toploader and which were the original. Now I understand. Bass is lifted straight from here, keyboard is similar, though simplified on the Toploader version. Hats off to King Harvest for a fantastic tight harmony line on the melody and a goregeous song. A geat tune that has proved that it can stand the test of time.
That explains it all for me. I thought Toploader did the original and couldn't understand why they didn't have loads of other hits, since this is so well written. Truth was they didn't have any decent original material.
