Right Place Wrong Time (4:32)

Cover of In the Right Place

From In the Right Place and 29 other releases

The Right Place, Wrong Time Songfacts says: Lyrically, “Right Place, Wrong Time” is standard blues fare, documenting in ironic one-liners the singer’s propensity for misfortune. In the tune’s weirder moments, Rebennack fuses this blues-based sense of the absurd with a psychedelic sensibility in line with the late ’60s mood that saw Dr. John’s emergence. He calls, for instance, for a little “brain salad surgery” to fix his ailing mind, articulated here as “refried confusion.”
