Musical coincidences # 275

July 19, 2012

My friend Michael (hi, Michael!) suggested this coincidence. I must admit that I don’t think it’s all that strong, but it does involve an obscure, probably long-forgotten song that I’d never heard before, so here it is.

The Weltons – “Hang 10 Hang 10” (1977) (excerpt)

Ike & Tina Turner – “Nutbush City Limits (1971) (excerpt)

In defence of The Weltons apparent lack of originality, I’m sure there are plenty of glam songs that started that way. Rather inconveniently, I can’t think of any at the moment 0 but that won’t stop me saying quite categorically that there’d have to be, oh, thousands of glam songs that start that way.

Incidentally, in high school we renamed “Ike & Tina Turner” to “I Can Turn A Corner”.

Here are the full versions:
