“Mo’reen” was originally written and performed by Paul Revere & The Raiders, but before I play you that I have another Antipodean cover version for you. It’s by New Zealand rockers Larry’s Rebels:

I have to say that the bass-line in “Mo’reen” (especially in the original version) is one reason I love playing bass. That’s a great bass-line.
