Misirlou

So you think the song Pump it - Black Eyed Peas, is just an overrated song they produced back in 2005? wrong, they stole it from Dick Dale who actually stole the tune from some guitar trio...Anyway listen to this track from Mr. Dale and tell me if you can find any positive additions the Black eyed peas made to it!

(warning; recorded from 'pulp fiction', first 13 seconds contain profanity)
If this is old news for you, I am sorry, just had to get it off my chest.

On an unrelated note. I have been getting a lot of positive reactions to the portal song, so I will keep that on my blog a little longer. Maybe I'll add another one too.

  1. I have always, always loved this track. I honestly think the Black Eyed Peas did it justice at any rate - not a bad interpretation

    Thanks for the share! Reminded me I need to go away and watch the film again

  2. I share Michael's opinion. I find the BEP version to be just as enjoyable, even though the video for the song is absolutely ludicrous.

    I'm happy to see that you have a wide enough range in musical taste to have caught this however.

  6. Old news indeed! On the other hand - if you want your blog to be more English-friendly, I suggest changing the language in dated and such to English. It is really simple, just go to settings > formatting and scroll down to language and set English.
