Song of the day: The Gigolo Aunts – "Why Can’t This Be Love"

I was cheerfully listening to the Beatles-inspired mix tape Beatlesque Again (thanks, Angelo!) and enjoying all the Beatles-lovin’ power pop artists and their Beatle-y homages to the Quality Quartet when this appeared:

The original:

Van Halen – “Why Can’t This Be Love (1986)

Update: I’ve just discovered that the Gigolo Aunts track originally came from a Van Halen tribute album called Everybody Wants Some! (1997). It’s full of gems such as Eddie Van Halen‘s guitar solo showcase “Eruption” in two cover versions – one played on a church organ and the other on banjo. Yes indeedy-doo-dah-day.
