Album: Voobaha

Appears On (Mixes): Revme.Vox.Com; Rise & Shine Or You're A Goner: The Best Of Barnes & Barnes

Song Notes: Revme.Vox.Com: I suppose I should probably be posting a cut by the Billy Nayer Show since Dale and I are gonna go see them tonight, but I'm listening to Voobaha right now again, and I'm really in a Barnes & Barnes mood today, so here you go. (Though, of course, if you know me, I've probably preached the gospel of the awesomeness of the Billy Nayer Show to/at you before, so you probably don't need me to tell you here that you NEED to buy every record and DVD they ever put out. Actually, same with Barnes & Barnes, but hey.) This is just a really great rockin' stomper of a song, and it's always been one of my favorites. Always wanted to form a band that would have this in its repertoire. Just a great rock song all around. Actually, today, at the Barnes & Barnes Yahoo Group, someone posted an ALTERNATE version that aired on the Dr. Demento show in 1979—this is the straight album version, though. The Alternate's got a quite different vocal line, and a couple lyrical tweaks (in this one, "Down on the boulevard dey pumpin'/Dey pumpin' in Lumania too" is "Down in Mexico dey pumpin'/They pumpin' in Canada too" -- but I like the album lyrics better) -- it's definitely worth checking out, but this is by far the superior version. After all, it IS the one they put on the record and all. So, here goes—dig this song. I sure as hell do. -Rev. Syung Myung Me
