musical happiness

There's another source of delight in my life, now that I have discovered Aretha Franklin's version of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" (From Painted Black, a compilation of Rolling Stones cover tracks).

Not only that, but I discovered it while listening to the Coverville podcast devoted to mondegreens (misheard lyrics). (Don't miss the comments on the web page for the podcast.)

A version of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" made it onto the show because someone misheard a line in the second verse as line as "I was raised by a toothless spinning ham".

Also, I would rather listen to a song called "Love Dogs in Space" than one called "Love Comes in Spurts" any time.

Rather prone to mondegreens myself, all my life. There was that song "Groovin" by those early proponents of polyamory, The Young Rascals ("That would be ecstasy: you and me and Leslie!"). And a few years back, wasn't it Pinc who proudly proclaimed "When I walk through the door I'm a dead guitar!"

The toothless spinning ham brought tears to my eyes.

Does it mention the advert that Wings made for Mulligan's Tyres?

(Sorry, I'm tired, brain is on automatic here)
