Song of the day: Madderlake – "Goodbye Lollypop"

I reckon this is one of the weirdest songs I’ve ever posted on this blog. It starts off as a light prog-rock boogie kind of thing, but about halfway through it becomes… well, I won’t spoil the shock of the sudden change of musical direction if you haven’t heard it before. Even telling you that it takes an unfathomable musical detour won’t stop you from going “What???”. But be forewarned: the second half of the song sounds nothing like the first half.

Ah, 1973. When you could do anything in rock music.

And that was released as a single.

    If a picture paints a thousand words, then the picture of the record label says it all quite nicely!

    Hey, Stoney: Yes indeedy. As I was writing the post I had thought it was Madder Lake and “Lollipop” (that's how it was written on all the copies I had). But then I went to Discogs, my source for all things accurate in the world of recorded music. Its entry for “Goodbye Lollypop” explained all. Thank you, Discogs!
