A couple of days ago I had a little* chat with a chap called Darren on Twitter (Hi, Darren!) about an Australian band from the 1970s called Mr. George.
T.F.D. (Twitter Friend Darren) told me about a Mr. George mini-documentary he produced. It lasts approximately five minutes and eight seconds, and it’s the shortest music documentary I know of. Although it managed to tell me a few things in its five minutes (and eight seconds), it didn’t tell me why the band decided to call themselves “Mr. George”. But it did tell me other things.
Now, because this post is meant to be a Song of the day, I’ll play you a Mr. George track and then sneak in the documentary after it:
Mr. George – “My Temperature’s High” (1974)
But back to the song:
“My Temperature’s High” was written by the splendid Ted Mulry, who recorded it himself the same year. I posted the original Ted version ages ago, but if you’re someone in a hurry and don’t have enough time to click on this link, I’ll put it here:
Ted Mulry Gang – “My Temperature’s High” (1974)
