    Thanks! I needed that!


  2. - MrJM - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:05 am:

    Have you ever seen the Deadstring Brothers, Rich? I am certain that you would deeply dig the magic that Kurt Marschke & co. perform live.

    – MrJM


  3. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:09 am:

    Yes!

    If that doesn’t get you pumped to face the day, what would?


  4. - Big Muddy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:14 am:

    GREAT way to start the day! If you haven’t heard the U2, Jagger and Fergie cover of this from the Rock and Roll hall of fame induction you are missing a great one.


  5. - Grandson of Man - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:15 am:

    Yes! Mick Taylor playing that Cherry Sunburst Les Paul is the way to get the day started.


  6. - chi - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:23 am:

    This is a great new trend…


  7. - FormerParatrooper - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:27 am:

    3 am flight from St Louis to Chicago on to Atlanta. What a great wake up. Thanks Rich


  8. - vole - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:31 am:

    Wow. I have to plead utter ignorance that Mick Taylor played that guitar lead. Until I watched this video and wondered: where the hell is Keith Richards and who is that young guy on the guitar? Guess I missed it for some reason back in the day.


  9. - Give Me A Break - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:36 am:

    Love this new wake up service you are providing Rich. Nothing better than Mick and the boys to get you started.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:42 am:

    “…eggs and bakey”

    The title of the Post only adds to my morning.


  11. - Linus - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:04 am:

    “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” was blasting on the radio as I drove to work this morning. So this is a great booster shot, of sorts.


  12. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:10 am:

    I thought when I read “Wakey! Wakey! it would actually be that awesome indie band, Wakey! Wakey! and their awesome morning song.

    BTW - They are downtown in concert tonight at Lincoln Hall!


  13. - Senator Clay Davis - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:15 am:

    Great version, though it’s really not as good a song without the female backing vocal.

    Raaaaape! Murderrrrrrrr! It’s just a shout away!


  14. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:16 am:

    Oh - sorry, that Rolling Stones stuff is pretty “groovy” too! Isn’t Jagger actually older than Dick Durbin?


  15. - Six Degrees of Separation - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:19 am:

    Speaking of the female backing vocal, it was a life-changing event for Merry Clayton. She had been woken out of bed by producer Jack Nitzchke, didn’t really feel up to it because she was about 8 months pregnant and tired, he convinced her to do it, she showed up at the studio in pj’s and rollers, knocked it out in about 3 takes, and had a miscarriage later that night after she got home.

    Her brother is Sam Clayton of Little Feat.


  16. - William j Kelly - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:22 am:

    I am sorry but this guy will NEVER GET ELECTED COMPTROLLER!!!


  17. - Willie Stark - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:26 am:

    With all due respect to the greatest rock band ever, Merry Clayton’s vocals make that song.

    The Guardian reported that she was severely injured in a June car accident in LA. Please spare a kind thought for her recovery. Also, from that article, she sang on Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama:

    “I said we’re going to sing the crap out of this song,” she told the Guardian’s Dorian Lynskey earlier this year. “They have the nerve to sing Sweet Home Alabama! That’s the white interpretation of Alabama. It’s not sweet home to black people! It’s not sweet home at all. We’re going to sing it like a protest song. We were singing it through our teeth, like we were really angry: We’re going to sing your song, honey, but not because we want to – because it’s necessary.”


  18. - Abraham Froman - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 11:07 am:

    Love this song, but add me to the list of folks who feel the female vocals are what makes it a classic


  19. - Cheswick - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 11:22 am:

    Excellent song. Thank you, Rich.

    And, thank you, Willie Stark for posting that last paragraph.


  20. - A guy... - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 11:34 am:

    Buzinga. This new wake up policy reminds me of Roy Scheider in All That Jazz. “It’s Show time!”


  21. - steve schnorf - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 11:49 am:

    I never thought this was one of their better ones


  22. - Amalia - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 11:52 am:

    oh to be 15 again.


  23. - Rory - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 12:35 pm:

    Now at 2:23 with the magnificent Lisa Fischer

  24. - Western Ave. Doug - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 2:12 pm:

    Makes for a good afternoon pick me up too. Thank you for the post, and the commentators with their insight. Looking for my “Get yer Ya Ya’s Out” Album. Gotta love the Stones.


  25. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 2:24 pm:

    ===Makes for a good afternoon pick me up too.===

    Just tried it. You’re right. ROCK AND ROLL!


  26. - door gunner - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:15 pm:

    wakey, wakey who is sleepy sleepy, run towards the gun fire, never mind who says or does what, attack attack, only one poll counts, ask Harry, ask the Brits, 55/45 , its neck and neck.


  27. - zatoichi - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 10:05 pm:

    A recently found suggestion I cannot shake:
    St. Paul and the Broken Bones.

  28. - Swamp attack cheat - Friday, Sep 26, 14 @ 9:50 am:

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking
    forward for your next post, I will try to get
    the hang of it!

    I am aware, Carla - this post is actually designed to curate the SEO information and discussions of
    the 7 days and mostly lets you know the WHAT or possibly the WHY,
    however, not so a lot the HOW.
