A few weeks ago  I stumbled on a wealth of videos of artists performing some song called “Mamy Blue.” I don’t recall ever hearing this song before. The first performance I decided to watch featured a catalog of Rock’s Unfulfilled Fashion Ideas.

I did not like the song one bit, but with all the covers I thought I’d try another.

    This smacks of some Eurovision attempt at sounding bluesy. It was probably written by the team from Freedonia in their last attempt to synch the contest. Some misguided used record store trawler then found a scratched copy in a cutout bin, decided to resurrect it for the sake of being ahead of the critical curve, and the rest was history. I’m waiting for The Crystal Ark to cover it and then it will regain it’s cult appeal.

    Awful song. But LMKR, you have good ears. See

    I have no idea, no idea at all, what people were hearing in this that prompted so many covers. It sounds like an outtake from a crappy early 70s rock musical, if you’ll pardon the redundancy.

    The good news is that it never made the top 40 in America. USA! USA! USA!
